Welcome to the web home for the Green Bay Ecosystem Modeling project.
The diverse project team assembled is integrating existing watershed, biogeochemical and hydrodynamic models with downscaled regional climate scenarios to assess current conditions and future conditions and the efficacy of available strategies to mitigate hypoxia and restore beneficial uses.
Enjoy this short video describing the project!
While the project didn’t focus exclusively on hypoxia conditions in Green Bay, it certainly is an important consideration for this work. The NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) has a nice infographic explaining hypoxia. Click to see a larger version of the graphic.
