Colloquium in Freshwater Science: Russ Green

November 8, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 5:50 pm

National Marine Sanctuaries

Russ Green is a maritime archaeologist and Great Lakes regional coordinator for NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. He’s contributed to dozens of maritime archeology projects along the East and West Coasts, Bermuda, Micronesia, and Japan, and regularly leads fieldwork in the Great Lakes.

Topics of Discussion

  • What sort of research projects are being planned for the Lake Michigan Marine Sanctuary?
  • What is the status of the undiscovered shipwrecks?
  • What sort of technologies are being used to discover these shipwrecks?
  • What is the process for determining if a shipwreck is historically significant?
  • Is there any work being done to look at the ecological impact of preserving these shipwrecks in Lake Michigan?
  • Have shipwrecks in Lake Michigan created artificial environments for aquatic life like those that are found in saltwater environments?
  • Can we expect progress on decreasing invasive species through this program, or will this just form a baseline for further legislation to be passed to help reduce invasive species populations?
  • How will climate change and the increase in water temperature impact the preservation of the shipwrecks?
  • What percentage of the public will see one of these preserved shipwrecks?
