We occasionally publish research bulletins in collaboration with other scientists. These bulletins are designed to explain complex scientific results in an easy to understand format for use by the public, decision makers and teachers. The following Research Bulletins have been developed as part of these activities:
Mega Model Project. A description of the project. Summarizes objectives, approach, team and accomplishments.
Land Transformation Model Bulletin. This bulletin describes the use of the LTM model in the Muskegon River Watershed projects.
Land Use Trends. We have also described land use/cover patterns that have occured in the Muskegon River Watershed.
Hydrologic Modeling. Describes the various process-based and empirical models used int he project.
Managing the Land. How different land use practices alter ecosystem dynamics in regional watersheds.
Dams. Describes the issue of how dams alter hydrologic dynamics and impact biogeochemistry. Also discusses dam removal.
Sedimentation. Summarizes issues related to sedimentation in the watershed.
Walley. The potential impact of land use and climate change on walley in the MRW.
Chinook. Impacts to chinook salmon in the watershed.
Steelhead. Learn about steelhead biology and what is impacting this fish species in the watershed.
Purdue Climate Change Research Center
Climate Change Impacts in Indiana. Summarizes some of the impacts of climate change to agriculture in Indiana.
Environmental Protection Agency - State of the Lake Ecosystem Conference (SOLEC)
Surface Hardening Metric. Graduate students in HEMA developed a surface hardening indicator that is being adopted by the US EPA as part of their Great Lakes Basin Land Use/Cover Indicators.
