Lake Superior: The Big Picture

June 3, 2003

The public is invited to the final free talk in the “Superior Science for You!” speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program.

On June 11 at 7 p.m. in Duluth at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Mid-Continent Ecology Division, Gitchee Gumee Conference Facility (6201 Congdon Blvd.), Carl Richards, director of the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program will present, “Lake Superior: The Big Picture.”

It’s hugely beautiful and coldly treacherous; it’s a fisheries and water quality manager’s nightmare; it’s Lake Superior. Dr. Richards will discuss how intriguing interactions among space, time, chemicals, and species influence our understanding of Lake Superior. From the moments it takes a biochemical reaction to occur inside a diatom, to the eons it takes to sculpt the rock formations of the North Shore, enjoy the grand finale of this Lake Superior-oriented speaker series. A reception will follow the talk.

If you can’t attend in person, try listening through your computer. Live audio will be broadcast from the EPA Lab through Minnesota Sea Grant’s Web site.

Computer listeners can view the accompanying slides and even e-mail Dr. Richards questions that he will answer at the end of the talk. A video of the presentation will be posted to this site the next day. Video archives of previous talks and more information about the series can also be accessed through the speaker series Web page.

This speaker series was made possible by a grant funded under the Coastal Zone Management Act by NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management in conjunction with Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.
