View the results of USEPA Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO's) 1997
Great Lakes benthic biomonitoring study. These data incorporate the results
of the first year of GLNPO's benthic invertebrate monitoring program.
Samples were collected from 45 stations during the summer survey of 1997,
focusing on both the nearshore and offshore communities. This benthic work
is a new component to GLNPO's Great Lakes surveillance program, which has
included sampling for plankton and nutrients since the early 1980's.
