Husky Bites LIVE at Alumni Reunion presents Special Guest John Lenters

John D. Lenters
Associate Research Scientist, Great Lakes Research Center
Michigan Technological University


Environmental research on the Great Lakes—the largest lake system on the planet—is challenging. Even basic information such as weather conditions are largely invisible to mariners due to massive data gaps across vast expanses of water. In this presentation, John Lenters will explain how Michigan Tech’s Great Lakes Research Center and collaborators use scientific instruments on buoys and lighthouses to better understand the physical processes of the Great Lakes, such as wind, waves, circulation, evaporation, and ice cover.
