Description: The 2018 CMU Great Lakes Summer Research for Undergraduates program will focus on chemical and physical aspects of nearshore Lake Michigan and how these aspects affect algal, invertebrate, and fish communities. Research will also emphasize how water currents alter the availability of nutrients, the abundance and diversity of organisms, and nearshore-offshore coupling. Through involvement in this research program, students will interact with multiple faculty members to gain experience in sampling design, statistical analyses, ecological field and laboratory techniques, report writing, and scientific oral presentations. In addition, students will engage with faculty members to learn about issues related to the Great Lakes and also broad concepts of the research and professional development.
