--->> GLIN Site of the Month for March: International Association for
Great Lakes Research
A scientific organization made up of researchers studying the Laurentian
Great Lakes and other large lakes of the world, IAGLR promotes all
aspects of such research and communicates findings through its annual
conference, Journal of Great Lakes Research, and award and scholarship
programs. The IAGLR web site provides details about all these
activities. It also offers a convenient place for scientists to share
research findings and post jobs, events, news
and announcements of interest to the large lakes research community. And
for the first time, the site supports online registration for the IAGLR
Conference on the Great Lakes. So check out IAGLR's web site and find
out what's new and exciting in Great Lakes science.

--->> Realtime hydrology data: Current water level plots, NOAA/GLERL
Great Lakes water levels constitute one of the longest high quality
hydrometeorological data sets in North America, with master gage records
beginning about 1860 and sporadic records dating back to the early
1800s. The water levels data represented by the graphs on this web site
are collected and archived by NOAA's National Ocean Service.
