Great Lakes Research Center to be dedicated this week
HOUGHTON, MI-- Michigan Technological University this week plans to dedicate a $25 million research facility that was created to address pressing Great Lakes issues.
Michael Abbott, the facility's director, tells the Detroit News he has high hopes for the Great Lakes Research Center in Houghton. He says those interested in the Great Lakes—from government agencies to educational institutions—will come together at the facility.
A dedication is planned for Thursday. Issues on the center's plate range from invasive species to climate change. The center includes laboratories, aquatic labs, a computer center, underwater robots, and a dock for the center's 37-foot research vessel, the Agassiz.
