UWM alums Julia Robson and Alyssa Armbruster are going to hike 332 miles from Milwaukee to Lake Superior, stopping at locations the Environmental Protection Agency has identified as “areas of concern.”
UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences is launching a project to sequence and analyze the DNA of important Lake Michigan species, providing data that scientists and others can use to better preserve and protect precious natural resources.
UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences is a partner in a new research institute focused on sustainable management of the Great Lakes. The Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research represents a partnership between nine universities across the Great Lakes region, plus nongovernmental organizations and private businesses. CIGLR is led by the University of Michigan and funded […]
Harvey Bootsma studies, among other things, the yearly discharge of carbon dioxide from from the lake into the atmosphere. The event could offer insights into maintaining a healthy food chain and the role of lakes in climate change.
Cristal Sanchez-Estrada loves science of all kinds. The senior biological sciences major sees her work in the lab at the School of Freshwater Sciences as a foundation for any number of careers.
Despite regulations against it, the release of untreated sewage into urban waterways is widespread, in part, because of leaks in the aging wastewater infrastructure. Nearly 30 percent of stormwater discharge points in Milwaukee show evidence of such contamination, said Sandra McLellan, a UWM professor of freshwater sciences. McLellan is heading a project that combines science […]
Pollution runoff creates oxygen-deprived pockets in the waters of Green Bay, and UWM researchers are helping to resuscitate them.
Freshwater scientists discovered a Lake Michigan mystery, and meticulously documented data to solve it.
