A physical scientist at the NOAA-funded Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystem Research, Eric Anderson studies the movement of water in the Great Lakes using high-powered computers.
Today, NOAA issued the 2015 Harmful Algal Bloom Season Forecast for Lake Erie that integrates rainfall, river flow, and nutrient runoff measurements into computer models to better predict toxic algal blooms. As part of a team of NOAA scientists, Timothy Davis, Ph.D. studies the genetics of toxic algae at NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL).
As non-native mussels have multiplied in Lake Michigan and beyond, Henry A. Vanderploeg's work has revealed how devastating this invasion is to the Great Lakes food web and ecosystem.
Hongyan Zhang, Ph.D., uses computer models to investigate various topics, like the impact of invasive mussels on plankton, the occurrence of blue-green algal blooms, and the effectiveness of the phosphorous reduction program in Lake Erie.
