Hydrologic Dashboard Tool Washes Out Storm Uncertainties

Inspiration struck with the large storm that hit Duluth, Minnesota in October of 2005. The flooding that ensued after this unexpected event caught many off guard, so University of Wisconsin Sea Grant’s David Hart hired several graduate students to create an online tool that would show where and how the storm affected the area, and provide insight to similar events in the future.

Drifting Buoys Track Water Currents in the Great Lakes Straits of Mackinac

When you’re watching a river or the waves on a lake, do you ever wonder where that water goes? If you threw a rubber ducky into the water, where would it end up? Scientists are studying the movement of water in the Straits of Mackinac, which connect Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, to figure out how the water moves around. This water movement can affect ship traffic, how pollution spreads, and where aquatic animals go.
