Plans for the grant dollars from NOAA’s climate program are to continue existing work and ramp up both a small grants program and scenario planning efforts.
Academics founded GLISA in 2010 as a federally funded joint effort between U-M and MSU. The program is based at the U-M School of Environment and Sustainability.
Climate change is warming Lake Michigan deep water, say researchers
Researchers at the two largest state universities recently received $5.4 million from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to continue their study of climate change. The federal grant dollars will fund the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments – often called by acronym GLISA – where researchers pursue climate science data that helps community leaders make resilient decisions and plan for future changes.
Also, GLISA will begin new partnerships with the College of the Menominee Nation and the University of Wisconsin. The former will develop a student exchange program with U-M, and the latter will add to the inventory and data evaluation work at the Great Lakes Ensemble.
