During July 29-31, 2008, NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory will co-host a workshop at the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment on the University’s Central Campus, Ann Arbor, Michigan.  The title of the workshop is: “Impact of Climate Change on the Great Lakes Ecosystem - A NOAA Science Needs Assessment Workshop to Meet Emerging Challenges”.  The overarching purpose of the workshop is to develop a NOAA research strategy that addresses climate change impact on Great Lakes coastal ecosystems as driven by user needs.  Workshop co-hosts include the: Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research (CILER), Great Lakes Sea Grant Network, and the NOAA Great Lakes Regional Team.

 

Day 1 of the workshop, Tuesday, July 29, will feature a series of scientific panel presentations on the current state of knowledge of present and expected future impact of climate change on the Great Lakes ecosystem, with prime focus on effects in coastal waters and connecting channels.  Day 2 will feature a series of stakeholder panel presentations and Day 3 will bring together scientists and stakeholders within six concurrent breakout sessions followed by a final joint summary session.

 

A public Keynote Address will also be offered on Day 1, by Dr. Henry N. Pollack,

Professor of Geophysics, Department of Geology, University of Michigan (5 PM, Tuesday, July 29, 1800 Chemistry Building, University of Michigan Central Campus)
