DR. ROBERT STERNER
DIRECTOR OF THE LARGE LAKES OBSERVATORY
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA DULUTH
“THE OUTSIZED ROLE OF LARGE LAKES”
A few “dimples” of the Earth’s surface hold a large fraction of the planet’s liquid fresh water. In this talk, Dr. Sterner will consider how human action has altered these environments, how we value the water they contain, and what responsibilities come with our region being “water rich.”
