Great Lakes shorelines (260Kb) The bathymetric grids consist of an array containing the average lake depths in 2-km squares (1.2-km squares for Lake St. Clair). The digitized shorelines are lists of latitudes and longitudes for closed loops describing lake and island shorelines.Read More

The classification of lakes by thermal stratification presupposes lakes with sufficient depth to form a hypolimnion. As a results, very shallow lakes are excluded this classification system. The stratification in a lake is not always the result of variation to density because of thermal gradients.Read More
The Great Lakes coastal zone encompasses some of the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the region. Dramatic sand dunes, lush grasslands, and forests characterize some of the unique coastal ecosystems found along the Great Lakes shorelines. These unique transition areas along the Great Lakes—linking land and water—.Read More
Tool allows quicker erosion fixes Communities located along the shores of the Great Lakes have grown increasingly concerned about the water levels, at near-record highs, escalating erosion that threatens lakeshore properties.

We defined the largest three levels of GLAHF spatial classification hierarchy as the entire Great Lakes Basin, individual lakes, and lake sub-basins within a lake ().These three spatial scales also include their corresponding catchments and connecting channels ().We delineated four lake sub-basins within each of the lakes Erie, Ontario, and Superior, and five lake sub-basins for each of the.Read More
The Importance Of Water Pollution On The Environment. government, pollution has impaired 39 percent of the country’s rivers and streams; 45 percent of lakes, reservoirs, and ponds; 51 percent of estuaries; 78 percent of the great lakes shoreline; and 14 percent of ocean shorelines.Read More
Natural living shorelines are typically used in lower energy environments. They include native vegetation (e.g., marsh grasses and seagrass), clean sediment and biodegradable organic materials (e.g., logs made from coconut fiber). Hybrid living shorelines are typically used in lower to moderate energy environments.Read More
The Great Lakes Sparsely Vegetated Shore supports a wide variety of plant species, some unique to shoreline areas of the Great Lakes, including American beachgrass (Ammophila breviligulata), sea-rocket (Cakile edentula), beach pea (Lathyrus japonicus), and silverweed (Potentilla anserina).Read More
