UMW | New buoys hitting Lake Erie waters | Meet Katie

UW-Milwaukee researchers inform L. Michigan management using a GLOS buoy

How much phosphorus should flow into Lake Michigan? This question means millions for the economy around the lake and has huge implications for its underwater ecosystem.

And researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, led by Professor Harvey Bootsma, are working to help answer that question with the help of a GLOS buoy.
