The latest issue of Michigan Sea Grant's newsletter Upwellings is now
Treasures of the Great Lakes
Great Lakes coastal wetlands provide important ecological
functions and wildlife habitat. Yet shoreline alteration and
development continue to threaten these critical areas.
Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Illustrated Guide
This section features color photos depicting the diversity of
coastal wetlands, an illustrated guide to vegetative zones and
descriptions of coastal wetland types.
Where's the Beach?
Low water levels in the Great Lakes have helped create emergent
wetlands in some of Michigan's coastal areas. State and federal
agencies provide guidelines for coastal property-owners on regulations
governing Great Lakes bottomlands and emergent wetlands.
Monitoring the Effects of Sedimentation in Wetlands
Under natural conditions, coastal wetlands intercept and trap
sediments. But what happens when sediment is excessive due to urban
runoff and erosion? Sea Grant research may provide clues.
Upwellings Online is a quarterly publication of Michigan Sea Grant,
http://www.miseagrant.org. Michigan Sea Grant, a cooperative
program of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University,
is dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of Great Lakes
resources. Michigan Sea Grant is funded by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration. See NOAA at
