GLIN==> Watch Great Lakes Tonight on WGN Superstation







Tune in to WGN Superstation as it features a story on the Great Lakes
tonight at 9 pm Central Daylight Savings Time.

Background
As gale force winds blew on Lake Michigan, GLNPO's180-foot research
ship, the R/V Lake Guardian, was visited in Chicago on April 29th by
meteorologist Tom Skilling of WGN television.  (WGN is carried
nationwide as a cable and satellite TV "superstation.") Mr. Skilling was
given a tour of the ship and was an enthusiastic guest, asking many
questions about the lakes, the ship and the personnel performing the
Lake Guardian's work.  Being on the lee shore (nautical-speak for the
side that's not so windy) for the gales allowed us to steam a short
distance into the lake, where scientists and crew demonstrated sampling
equipment and discussed the uses of the equipment and the environmental
samples collected.

Video footage was taken of all these activities, as well as interviews
that Mr. Skilling conducted with Paul Horvatin, Glenn Warren, Judy Beck
and Dr. Matt Simcik of the University of Minnesota.  Dr. Simcik was
aboard the Lake Guardian taking water samples for analysis of toxic
contaminants, including PCB's, mercury, pesticides, brominated flame
retardants and other chemicals.
