Biologists, geologists, engineers, chemists, remote-sensing specialists, and computer scientists work together in a truly interdisciplinary and innovative way. One of our most important functions is to educate the scientists, engineers, technologists, policymakers, and stakeholders of tomorrow about the Great Lakes basin. The GLRC contains a lake-level marine facility and convenient deep-water docking, providing a year-round home for Michigan Tech's surface and sub-surface fleet of marine vehicles.
