Geographic Scope of the GLEI Project

The GLEI project study area covers the United States Great Lakes coastal margins from Grand Portage, Minnesota, to Watertown, New York. Samples are collected primarily along the coastal margin, but sampling may occur inland up to 1 kilometer (about 2/3 mile) for birds; fish, invertebrates, diatoms, and water quality data are also collected in waters 10 to 30 meters (30- 100 feet) deep.
