Background
In 1999, the Council of Great Lakes Research Managers brought together
modellers and resource managers to address the development of an aquatic
ecosystem model for Lake Erie at its workshop Great Lakes Modelling Summit:
Focus on Lake Erie, which resulted in the presentation of a suite of
complementary models that addressed different facets of changes in the Lake
Erie ecosystem. Prompted by the success of this workshop, the Council
approached the organizers of the Lake Erie Millennium Plan in early 2001
about hosting an additional modelling workshop to complement the themes of
the concurrent Lake Erie in the Millennium- Progress and New Issues and
Detroit River State of the Strait binational conferences planned for March
2001.  These conferences culminated in a roundtable discussion and workshop
to address the question:  "What is the likely role of Detroit River
remediation on the Lake Erie ecosystem?" 
The Council's workshop was convened immediately following to determine how a
modelling approach would contribute answers to that question. Nine panelists
with expertise in Great Lakes modelling were asked to participate. 
This report summarizes the proceedings from this workshop sponsored by the
Council of Great Lakes Research Managers on March 29, 2001.
