Cooperative research institute established.


NOAA and the University of Michigan have established a new Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystem Research, to be based at the university in Ann Arbor. Alfred Beeton, Director of NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratories in Ann Arbor, Mich., said the new institute will conduct Great Lakes-related research involving both university and NOAA scientists. Activities will be in the areas of toxic contaminants and chemical processes, coastal hydrodynamic and sedimentary processes, water quality and lake levels, physical processes, ecosystem dynamics and habitat, and climate and global change.

The institute has been established in cooperation with Michigan State University, and is unique in that it will provide for the participation in the research program of researchers at any Great Lakes Basin institution. The institute is the seventh established by NOAA with universities throughout the United States, and it is the only one with a primary focus on the Great Lakes.
