Abstract:
One of the initial research projects at NOAA's Center of Excellence for Great Lakes and Human Health deals with the influence of nearshore currents on water quality at swimming beaches. Currents in the Great Lakes are primarily wind-driven and have the potential to transport contaminants in unexpected directions. This talk examines what we know about currents in the Great Lakes, based on observations and computer models, and gives several examples of applications where currents might have a significant effect on human health issues.
