Stone Laboratory, Ohio State University’s Island Campus on Lake Erie, will be featured in a new four-part series, Lake Erie: Beyond the Surface, that airs this Saturday, June 30 at 7:00 pm on WKYC-TV3 in Cleveland.


The first of a year-long series, the documentary will provide an overview of the geophysical, political, and commercial history of Lake Erie; recount the story of the environmental science, rescue, and recovery of the lake; and outline its commercial importance to the region.


Dr. Jeff Reutter, Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory Director; discusses the Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory programs’ continued involvement with the Lake’s recovery through their research and education programs. Others featured include Ohio Sea Grant Extension and Coastal Ohio Director Melinda Huntley; OSU Emeritus and former Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory Director Dr. Charles Herdendorf; and Stone Lab faculty Chris Winslow.


The four-part series will continue throughout the next year, airing a new segment every quarter, with the next slated for September.
