GLERL research vessel, "Shenehon", Great Lakes, NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (GLERL)
While researching my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes, I went out on Lake Michigan with groups of students and research scientists to see the work they were doing. Pictured is a NOAA research vessel. I worked with professors from Grand Valley State University where I was teaching at the time.
Since my book is interdisciplinary, I also consulted experts in areas such as geology, fish biology, limnology and naturalists. I am not an expert, but I consulted a lot of experts while exploring the Great Lakes and their many wonders.
