level news and maps on GLIN
With water levels on the Great Lakes
continuing a downward trend, GLIN is offering new online services to
aid the shipping community, shoreline property owners, boaters and
all other recreational users of the lakes. The new regional data
portal for water level observations is made possible through a
partnership with NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS) – Center for
Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS). NOS manages a suite of premier web tools for
acquiring and distributing vital environmental measurements,
including water levels, currents, winds, air and water temperature,
and related hydrologic and meteorological data.
