Lake Superior’s natural history and future

Lake Superior defines our region. It's a powerful force that is both constant and changing.  What makes the beaches change from one day to the next? Why does the water level change from one year to the next? How does water move around the lake?  What changes have you seen during the time you have lived here?  

I will show how we can see day-to-day conditions on Lake Superior from buoys. I will also talk about how the lake has changed over the past hundred years and what we predict for its future.
