Climate Change in the Great Lakes

  • Study predicts longer Lake Michigan basin growing season25 November, 2014A new U.S. Geological Survey study on the effects of climate change says longer growing seasons in the Lake Michigan basin and earlier snowmelt are two likely outcomes of a warmer climate by the end of the century.

  • Ethanol use in Michigan cuts greenhouse gas, study finds24 November, 2014New research suggests increased ethanol fuel use could be dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Michigan.

  • State and local climate adaptation plans20 November, 2014States and communities around the country have begun to prepare for the climate change. An interactive map by the Georgetown Climate Center highlights the status of state and local adaptation efforts, including those in the Great Lakes region.

  • New tool helps visualize how climate change could affect the Great Lakes13 November, 2014The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently launched a web tool that predicts what the Great Lakes shorelines look like under different water levels.

  • Webinar: Climate Change and Corn Belt Agriculture13 November, 2014With severe weather events forecast to increase in number and intensity, corn crop yields may decrease due to increased nutrient runoff. On Nov. 18, OSU's Climate Change Webinar Series will focus on climate predictions for the Midwest, research findings, and impacts for Lake Erie.
