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.  The workshop will bring together NOAA and other Great Lakes scientists together with stakeholders to:

1)  Examine the current state of knowledge of the physical, chemical, and biological impact of climate change on Great Lakes coastal waters and connecting channels.  Such a knowledge base includes current scientific understanding, products, services, expertise, monitoring and observing systems, datasets and forecast models.
2)  Develop a dialogue with Great Lakes stakeholders to identify their key needs related to the impact of climate change on Great Lakes resources.
3)  Document key challenges that climate change impacts pose in continuing effective management, restoration and protection of the integrity of the Great Lakes Ecosystem and related resources of particular concern to stakeholders.

If you wish to participate in the workshop please register online and pay the $125 registration fee by credit card at:
