The summer edition of Upwellings, Michigan Sea Grant’s quarterly newsletter, is now available online. This issue’s theme is how to stay safe in and around the Great Lakes.
An introductory editorial by the editor reflects on her college memories of a man who died after getting caught in Lake Superior’s currents. This issue also talks about lake physics issues such as rip currents and another recently discovered current hazard called “channeling.” Also detailed are a litany of other dangers present in the Great Lakes and what to do to survive them.
“Enjoy the lake, appreciate its beauty, but also know what the hazards look like,” wrote Upwellings editor Stephanie Ariganello.
The quarterly newsletter is available for free online or in print and covers Great Lakes issues and as well as sharing the progress of the organization.
