Many see winter as a dormant season for the Great Lakes, but U-M researchers are finding activity and insights on a recent trek to Lake Huron. Teams from 19 U.S. and Canadian institutions, including U-M, braved the elements to sample at 35 sites on all five Great Lakes during the Winter Grab, a first-of-its-kind coordinated winter sampling campaign.
