Community outreach and technical assistance for assessing climate change risks and vulnerabilities within the Great Lakes region

NOAA will collect baseline climate data, which will be used to provide adaption strategies throughout the basin. NOAA will: 1) create an inventory of existing elevation data in the Great Lakes and the help in the filling of critical data gaps for bathymetric lidar in Lake Superior; 2)Extend existing regional climate models, creating a larger set of possible climatic outcomes, and broadening current models to couple the 3-dimensional Great Lakes Ice-circulation Model (GLIM); and 3) provide information and management tools to state and local resource managers to help them develop plans to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
