The International Upper Great Lakes Study represents the final product of a bi-national team effort spanning more than five years. More than 200 scientists, engineers, planners and technical experts drawn from a wide range of disciplines and from governments, academia and the private sector, contributed to the Study’s planning, applied research and analysis. Their efforts and professionalism helped produce a comprehensive Study based on sound science and peer-reviewed analysis.

This includes the final reports, models, presentation and key datasets used and produced by the IUGLS.
