The Episodic Events - Great Lakes Experiment (EEGLE) observation data in Lake Michigan, the Great Lakes region, coordinated by the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory from 1997 to 2001

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

The Episodic Events - Great Lakes Experiment (EEGLE) project was coordinated by NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory. The data collected in support of this project are archived in three accessions including: 1) biological and water quality observations; 2) sediment observations; and 3) oceanographic observations.

In August 1997 the NOAA Coastal Ocean Program and National Science Foundation Coastal Ocean Processes began a jointly funded program to study the impact of episodic plume events on sediment and constituent transport and subsequent ecological effects in Lake Michigan referred to as the EEGLE project. The project focused on the importance of episodic events on nearshore-offshore transport and subsequent ecological consequences. The programs goal was to create an integrated observational program and numerical modeling effort to identify, quantify, and develop prediction tools for the winter-spring resuspension event and to assess the impact of this event on the transport and transformation of Biogeochemically Important Materials (BIMS) and on lake ecology.
