The International Association for Great Lakes Research's (IAGLR) annual Conference on Great Lakes Research showcases the latest findings on the Great Lakes and other large lakes around the world. This year's conference, held last month in Detriot, Michigan, highlighted a range of NCCOS research, including:ecological forecasting, remote sensing, habitat mapping, modeling, harmful algal blooms, chemical contaminants, nutrients, invasive species, and hypoxia.

Below are the abstracts of the presentations and posters NCCOS scientists and their sponsored researchers contributed to the conference (note: Individual abstracts are no longer available. Please search for the abstracts listed below at this website).
