                     Minnesota Sea Grant's Web Site Revamped

The University of Minnesota Sea Grant's Web site has a new address and a new 
look.  The new URL is: www.seagrant.umn.edu.  The new look is designed to make 
the site easier to navigate.  

The site offers 820 pages of searchable information about the programs, 
publications, and activities of Minnesota Sea Grant, which focuses scientific 
research and public education on Lake Superior and Minnesota's inland waters. 

Specific topics covered on the site include exotic species, fisheries, tourism, 
and water quality.  Highlights include:

- a library of 500 images from around the Great Lakes ("Visualizing the Great 
Lakes") 
- a compendium of definitions and terms about the Great Lakes ("Glossary of the 
Great Lakes") 
- scientific research information
- online versions of dozens of free fact sheets and Minnesota Sea Grant's 
newsletter, the "Seiche"  
- news releases and events
- an online order form that makes requesting any of the program's 440 
publications easy and fast

Minnesota Sea Grant is funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration and the University of Minnesota.  It is part of the National Sea 
Grant Program, which sponsors research in 31 coastal and Great Lakes states and 
territories.
