The International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) is a scientific organization made up of researchers studying the Laurentian Great Lakes, other large lakes of the world, and their watersheds, as well as those with an interest in such research. IAGLR members encompass all scientific disciplines with a common interest in the management of large lake ecosystems on many levels.
We are a member-run professional association that holds an annual Conference on Great Lakes Research. Our Journal of Great Lakes Research is a highly respected professional publication with broad distribution.

State of the Strait Conference Tackles Restoration Target Setting
On October 28th, IAGLR and 20 other agencies and organizations sponsored a biennial tradition between the United States and Canada called the State of the Strait Conference held this year at the University of Windsor. This 2013 Conference was also dedicated to long-time IAGLR member and colleague Dr. David Dolan, who passed away unexpectedly earlier this year.
Over 200 people attended the event, which covered concern about the Detroit River and western Lake Erie watershed to discuss the current efforts being undertaken to strengthen the science-policy linkage and to share knowledge and lessons to help better manage this shared bioregion where nearly seven million people live. Key issues discussed included defining a “desired future state”, ensuring ecological relevance, building consensus on quantitative targets, and ensuring minimum, necessary, sufficient, and feasible long-term monitoring. The final report will be completed by mid-2014 | 11/4/13
