Great Lakes Research Consortium
Great Lakes Research Review

imageThe Great Lakes Research Review was created to provide an outlet for information concerning important research being undertaken in the Great Lakes, particularly but not exclusively by researchers affiliated with the New York Great Lakes Research Consortium and its member institutions. It is designed to fill a gap between newsletter-type information and articles that are suited for technical journals. 

Online Issues of the Great Lakes Research Review

The Great Lakes Research Review is published jointly by the Great Lakes Research Consortium, the University of Buffalo's Great Lakes Program and New York Sea Grant. It is distributed to over 3,000 scientists, managers, and other interested stakeholders around the Great Lakes.
