Coping Zones

The six technical working groups representing the key Great Lakes interests each developed coping zones using unique methods and data to identify problematic conditions for their interest in support of adaptive management efforts and the evaluation of Lake Superior regulation plans. Coping zones define the ranges of levels and flows that affect the different interests, from those levels that are desirable and within expectations and tolerance, to levels outside of expectations but tolerable, to levels beyond the range of tolerance that cause long-lasting or permanent adverse impacts
