uWindsor researchers receive $1.9 M for Great Lakes study

October 22, 2015

Researchers at the University of Windsor have received $1.9 M US as part of a $10 M grant for the American-based Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Monitoring Program. uWindsor is the only Canadian PSE institution to be involved in the project. The research is part of the larger $400 M Great Lakes Restorative Initiative launched five years ago in the US, which has helped create a massive database on the wetlands in the Great Lakes’ basin. Researchers at uWindsor will contribute data that will help take “the pulse of the Great Lakes’ wetlands,” according to uWindsor biology professor Jan Ciborowski, who added that one of the project’s primary goals is to protect and restore the Great Lakes’ shoreline.
