ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Federal experts will discuss the causes and potential consequences of low Great Lakes water levels during a Thursday seminar in Ann Arbor that also will be broadcast on the Web.
The program will feature presentations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Detroit district, and the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and Environment.
Levels on most of the Great Lakes have been below average since the late 1990s. Scientists say lack of precipitation and high evaporation rates are the primary causes.
The seminar is open to the public. It begins at 3 p.m. Thursday in Forum Hall of Palmer Commons on the University of Michigan campus.
