Although buoys collect and relay data largely on their own, they require a team to deploy. Covid slowed them down.
Hypoxic conditions could pose a threat to the yellow perch population in Lake Erie, the largest commercial fishery.
Scientists continue finding clever ways to use data collected by Lake Erie’s Nearshore buoy at Presque Isle.
The Mobile HAB Lab project is taking awareness about Microcystin to the public in Pennsylvania to help keep people and pets safe.
Ohio State’s Stone Lab researchers make headway in understanding Microcystis toxin production and predicting toxicity of HAB events in the Lake Erie region.
The Great Lakes Observing System’s texting buoys are making all kinds of data available via text to anyone who wants it, democratizing data.
Early Lake Erie region settlers viewed the Black Swamp as an obstacle to be overcome. One researcher says bringing part of its wetlands back may help the region, not hurt it.
After many walleye were seen on an underwater camera in Lake Erie’s Presque Isle Bay, a biologist explains walleye numbers and monitoring in the lake.
Debates over designation of Lake Erie’s open waters as impaired have finally resulted in a designation from Ohio, but will this mean no more algal blooms?
With a new grant, an ad-hoc monitoring network that sprang up after the Toledo water crisis is maturing into the premier Lake Erie observatory.
Scientists from Bowling Green State University use data buoys to study the Sandusky Bay to learn more about Lake Erie Planktothrix blooms and water quality.
Researchers at Ohio State University’s Stone Lab gather algae measurements using a cellular data buoy with the goal of one day predicting bloom toxicity.
A Lake Erie infographic from the Fall 2016 Environmental Monitor magazine details the lake’s productivity, algae woes and other facts using a map.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has completed the first long-term deployment of ESPniagara, a robot measuring microcystin in real time.
The Lake Erie watersnake was once endangered in Ohio and threatened federally. But thanks to a nearly decade-long effort, the snake is thriving once again.
In a Q&A, Ohio Sea Grant’s Chris Winslow shares updates on some ongoing projects at the fore of improving water quality in and around Lake Erie.
An agricultural economist lays out different options for fixing Lake Erie’s algal blooms, like a phosphorus tax or subsidy, along with associated costs.
Investigators from Ohio State University’s Aquatic Ecology Laboratory evaluate effects of cyanobacteria blooms on the Lake Erie food web.
A modeling effort led in part by Ohio State scientists shows that the western Lake Erie phosphorus reduction target can be met with more farmers onboard.
A modeling effort led partly by the Nature Conservancy assesses what needs to be done to achieve a 40 percent reduction in Lake Erie phosphorus.
