The Not-So Calm After the Storm: Modeling Storm-Associated River Plumes in Southern Lake Michigan

Chelsea Weiskerger was a 2019-2020 CIGLR Graduate Research Fellow from Michigan State University (MSU). Weiskerger graduated with a doctoral degree in civil and environmental engineering focused on Lake Michigan storm and water quality impacts. Currently, Weiskerger is working for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). She is based in Atlanta, Georgia, and is developing and calibrating watershed and water quality models to inform regulatory decisions to protect surface water and public health.
