represents the shoreline in 1938, though the orange line farthest offshore represents
wherever the bluff was in that yr. The next blue and orange strains are wherever the shoreline
and bluff ended up in 2016. The hashed purple line represents the bluff retreat threat place,
which estimates wherever the bluff is projected to be in 30 yrs. Credit: Michigan Tech

Dude Meadows is the Michigan Technological College Robbins professor of Sustainable Marine
Engineering and the founding director of the Fantastic Lakes Study Centre. His presentation will centre on how lake amounts have improved in the previous eighty yrs
and present information to coastal communities.

Researchers at Michigan Tech’s Geospatial Study Facility have produced a internet portal wherever anybody can discover shoreline adjustments alongside Michigan’s Fantastic Lakes. Also, Meadows
a short while ago wrote an posting about coastal local community resilience for the Intercontinental Joint Fee publication, Fantastic Lakes Relationship.

Additional shows will be built by EGLE employees Charlie Simon of the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers Detroit District Regulatory Place of work Dan Dietz of Dietz Household Going
of Muskegon and Brian Majka of GEI Consultants in Grand Rapids. The very first High Water
Summit webinar was March 26, and was attended by much more than 750 persons.
