Great Lakes Observing & Forecasting Systems

Data Management, Handling & Analysis of Great Lakes Time Series

Overview and Objectives

GLERL and CILER will benefit from enhanced management of existing datasets, and those currently being generated. This takes the form of cataloguing, archiving, and serving both data and metadata. The objective of this work was to awareness, availability, and usability of existing datasets by both internal (GLERL and CILER) and external users. Also within the scope of this project was the handling of data being generated by modeling activities done cooperatively by CILER and GLERL. The model data were analyzed, reduced, and the results were transferred to the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), led by their Detroit District. The objective of this work was to support USACE’s planned engineering technical letter on Great Lakes water levels under climate change. The last effort included in the scope of this project was the collection and analysis of overlake winter meteorology in the Great Lakes region. The objective of this was to provide an improved method to estimate the overlake winter meteorology in ice-hydrodynamic modeling.
