                     Lake Superior: The Big Picture

The public is invited to the final free talk in the "Superior Science
for You!" speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea
Grant Program.

On June 11 at 7 p.m. in Duluth at the Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) Mid-Continent Ecology Division, Gitchee Gumee Conference Facility
(6201 Congdon Blvd.), Carl Richards, director of the University of
Minnesota Sea Grant Program will present, "Lake Superior:  The Big
Picture."

It's hugely beautiful and coldly treacherous; it's a fisheries and
water quality manager's nightmare; it's Lake Superior.  Dr. Richards
will discuss how intriguing interactions among space, time, chemicals,
and species influence our understanding of Lake Superior.  From the
moments it takes a biochemical reaction to occur inside a diatom, to
the eons it takes to sculpt the rock formations of the North Shore,
enjoy the grand finale of this Lake Superior-oriented speaker series.

A reception will follow the talk.  If you can't attend in person, try
listening through your computer.  Live audio will be broadcast from the
EPA Lab through Minnesota Sea Grant's Web site at:
www.seagrant.umn.edu/speakerseries/index.html.

Computer listeners can view the accompanying slides and even e-mail Dr.
Richards questions that he will answer at the end of the talk.  A video
of the presentation will be posted to this site the next day.  Video
archives of previous talks and more information about the series can
also be accessed through the speaker series Web page.

This speaker series was made possible by a grant funded under the
Coastal Zone Management Act by NOAA's Office of Ocean and Coastal
Resource Management in conjunction with Minnesota's Lake Superior
Coastal Program.
