Current Recipient

Site of the Month Lake Level Viewer: United States Great Lakes
coast.noaa.gov/digitalcoast/tools/llv

GLIN's November Site of the Month is the new Great Lakes Lake Level Viewer, from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. This tool helps users visualize lake level changes that range from six feet above to six feet below historical long-term average water levels in the Great Lakes, along with potential shoreline and coastal impacts.

Communities can use this information to determine what preparations make the most sense in planning for water level change scenarios. Preparations might include zoning restrictions, infrastructure improvements, and habitat conservation. Information obtained from this tool also provides a good lead-in for community discussions about climate change.

Funding for this project was received via President Obama's Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Water levels referenced in this tool are provided by the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory's Great Lakes Water Level Dashboard.

Overview
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
