Abstract
The report addressed hydrometeorological, engineering, and land management and policy issues related to fluctuations in Great Lakes water levels. The Board felt that this topic was of importance as the possibilities of a rising sea level and the impacts of climate change on hydrology are considered. Six formal papers were presented by recognized experts concerning aspects of lake level fluctuations, shoreline impacts of water level changes, alternative solution strategies, policy conflicts in existing laws, multi-jurisdictional issues, and the role of the private sector. Additionally, panel discussions focused on climate change and state coastal erosion management programs. The report has three major sections: an overview prepared by the chairman of the colloquium, issue papers by the individual authors, and panel discussion papers.
