In the first of two programs about the Great Lakes, Dr. Eric Anderson of the Great Lakes Research Laboratory will talk about his work including the challenges of predicting weather and understanding currents in the lakes. His computer modeling of currents near the Mackinac Bridge will guide the Coast Guard in the event of an oil spill from Line 5. His studies of algal blooms shed light on the danger to drinking water.

Dr. Anderson is an oceanographer for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) which oversees the Great Lakes Research Lab.

Free Admission, open to the public.
