Marquette – Northern Michigan University is leading a collaborative effort to establish a coastal hazard observing system for a stretch of Lake Superior shoreline that includes the communities of Marquette, Munising and Grand Marais.
A community forum will be held on Sunday, November 30 at 7 p.m. at the Ore Dock Brewing Company in Marquette. Collaborators will share information about the new system and gather input from each community.
The project is funded by a $100,000 grant from the Great Lakes Observing System. As part of the system, project scientists will deploy two monitoring buoys on Lake Superior.
One will be placed near Munising within five nautical miles of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. It will provide minute-by-minute observations of weather, water temperature and wave activity to boaters and kayakers.
A second, more portable buoy will provide measurements of wave activity along various stretches of the Lake Superior shoreline, including Granite Island Light Station, Grand Marais and Whitefish Point.
