Guy's research projects

Locating Two of Lake Superior's 100 Year Old Secrets

Researchers at Michigan Tech's Great Lakes Research Center study all things water - what is in it, what lives in it, and what lies beneath.

Great Lakes Research Center

This cabled observatory gives us an underwater interface that can be used year-round and is allowing us to study under a cover of ice. Our goal is to build a bigger observatory and monitor all of the Great Lakes.
