U-M researchers work to minimize the effects of climate change in Grand Traverse Bay

Communities across the Grand Traverse Bay region have experienced weather events related to climate change, from severity in storms to fluctuations in lake ice cover. These changes have occurred along with population growth and urbanization across the watershed.

A team of researchers from U-M and MSU at the Michigan Sea Grant is seeking to inform stakeholders and the scientific community about Grand Traverse Bay’s vulnerability to climate variability and change. Additionally, the research will begin a process of adaptive management that should ultimately improve the region’s ability to respond to and mitigate the impacts of such change.
