Great Lakes Climate Change Described in Public Talk

July 28, 2004

The public is invited to the next free talk in the Liquid Science speaker series, hosted by the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Mid-Continent Ecology Division. The talk will take place on August 10 at 7 p.m. at the EPA Gitchee Gumee Conference Center (6201 Congdon Blvd.).

Lucinda Johnson, associate departmental director at UMD’s Natural Resources Research Institute, will present, “Great Lakes in a Changing Climate.” Johnson will discuss how ecosystems have been changing and what the latest climate research suggests about the future of the Great Lakes. This region is already experiencing warmer temperatures and increased precipitation compared with records collected over the last century. By 2100, summer temperatures near Lake Superior are expected to be similar to those currently seen in Kansas.

A reception will follow the talk. For more information, visit Liquid Science online (www.seagrant.umn.edu/speakerseries/) or contact Minnesota Sea Grant by e-mail (seagr@d.umn.edu) or by phone (218-726-8106).

This series was made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources-Waters and Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program through the Coastal Zone Management Act, which is administered through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management.
