Climate Change and Water Quality in the Great Lakes Basin
A new report prepared by the IJC's Great Lakes Water Quality Board
As presented at the International Joint Commission's Great Lakes Conference and Biennial Meeting held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, September 19, The IJC's Water Quality Board has released a comprehensive report that provides valuable insight and advice on an issue that could have significant implications for the Great Lakes. The report, Climate Change and Water Quality in the Great Lakes Basin, includes a "white paper" by climate change experts Joel Scheraga, Linda Mortsch and Marianne Alden, which explores risks, opportunities, and responses associated with climate change and Great Lakes water quality. It also includes the proceedings of the board's May 2003 climate change workshop; a presentation by Georges Beauchemin, which provides practical insight about how to deal with the consequences of climate change; and advice to the IJC.
The report is available on CD from the IJC's Great Lakes Regional Office and on the web at http://www.ijc.org/php/publications/html/climate/index.html
