Lake Superior
The water flowing through our local streams eventually finds it's way into Lake Superior.


Find out how lakes work by visiting Water on the Web (WOW). This website and its companion Lake Access also use intensive real-time water quality data and interactive data visualization and animation tools to see how lakes work and respond to differences in their watersheds and climate and to land-use changes caused by humans.

For a short overview of Lake Ecology, visit the WOW Lake Ecology Primer.
