Exploration of a Submerged Sinkhole Ecosystem in Lake Huron
Dissolution of the Silurian-Devonian aquifer in the Lake Huron Basin has produced several karst formations in the bedrock (sinkholes), through which groundwater emerges onto the lake floor. DuringExpand

The Relationship between Great Lakes Water Levels, Wave Energies, and Shoreline Damage.
The latter half of the twentieth century can be characterized as a period of rising water levels on the Great Lakes, with record high levels in 1974 and 1986. Concurrent with these periods of highExpand

An intercomparison of four mixed layer models in a shallow inland sea
Four mixed layer (ML) models after Denman [1973] (KLD), Garwood [1977] (RWG), McCormick and Scavia [1981] (K), and Thompson [1976] (RT) were compared against an extensive water temperature data setExpand
