Current research, researchers, and emerging technology

Current research going on in Lake Erie and the Great Lakes as it relates to HABs, water quality, and aquatic ecosystems. This includes researchers who work on issues pertaining to
freshwater, HABs, cyanotoxins, and lake water quality. You will also find how emerging technologies are being used to assess water quality, testing, monitoring, and forecasting.
