In 2014, the U.S. Geological Survey Great Lake Science Center (USGS-GLSC) and the USGS-Michigan Water Science Center partnered with the Great Lakes Commission (GLC) to conduct a series of four workshops with coastal practitioners and managers across the Great Lakes basin to highlight the need for, and get input on, a Great Lakes regional coastal science strategy. To this end, the "Practitioners Views of Science Needs for the Great Lakes Coastal Ecosystem" report is intended to help guide USGS coastal and nearshore science priorities, but may also help guide other science agencies.
