GLIN==> Sept. 10 Congressional Briefing: Integrated Monitoring for the GreatLakes - St. Lawrence River System



The Great Lakes Commission invites you to a September 10 briefing in 
Washington, D.C., to discuss plans and funding requirements for a Great 
Lakes Observing System (GLOS) and related monitoring programs.

Speakers will address:

* The need for integrated monitoring, modeling and analyses to support 
implementation of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement

* Recommended enhancements to the current water level and flow 
monitoring network on the Great Lakes and interconnecting waterways

* Recent efforts to establish a GLOS Regional Association 
<www.glc.org/glos> to coordinate planning, operations and product 
development for Great Lakes monitoring and modeling activities

* Expected recommendations in the upcoming U.S. Commission on Ocean 
Policy report and pending legislation to authorize an Integrated Ocean 
Observing System (IOOS)

The agenda follows. Please plan to attend this public briefing if you're 
in Washington, and we encourage you to share this announcement with your 
colleagues and congressional interests.
