Lake Erie and Watershed Studies

Immersed in Water Quality

Teams of BGSU faculty and students are immersed in the complex problems facing Lake Erie and in so doing have created a living laboratory for scientific inquiry and investigation. In the process, they not only are making discoveries with potential global implications, but also are infusing classroom and laboratory lessons with the kind of energy that only exists when passion, resources and knowledge intersect.

Collaboration among its academic departments in biological sciences, geology, chemistry, environment & sustainability and the School of Human Development’s sport and leisure studies program strengthens the University’s research capabilities and scope while teaching students the importance of collaboration as they unravel problems that require more than one scientific discipline to solve.
