Are the Great Lakes being influenced by the global greenhouse effect? Introduction: Global warming has been talked about and debated on for many years. Is it actually happening and how can we tell are a few of the questions being asked. Here in the Great Lakes, many are wondering “Who cares?” Some however are asking “are we effected by the changes here in Michigan, and in the Great Lakes region and if so, how?” One way scientists determine the effects of global warming on a region is by monitoring the water temperatures throughout the entire year of a lake. This can be done with a buoy that records the date (month, day, and year) and the air and water temperatures for that day. By analyzing this type of data, a trend can be followed. The scientists can then ask “Is there a correlation between the water temperature and the warming of the global climate?” This is important to know because changing water temperatures can harm species of animals that inhabit that lake or impact the areas surrounding that lake.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
