Written in a clear, readable style by an acknowledged expert in limnology and biology, Lake Michigan in Motion is certain to become a classic reference book on the subject of the Great Lakes. Its blend of history, science, and public policy will give it broad appeal to limnologists, graduate students, researchers, public officials, elementary and high school teachers, those who live near the Lake, and those who use it for their livelihood and recreation.

Three numerical models are formulated for long-wave motion in a 180 km long gulf (Green Bay, Wisconsin) that opens into Lake Michigan. These models are used to investigate the response of the Bay to wind forcing and excitation by disturbances entering from the main Lake basin. Model simulations of water movements in the Bay have been done for two periods of 4 and 8 days respectively during 1969. Observed fluctuations in water level during these periods have been compared with the corresponding variations predicted by the models. Agreements and disagreements are discussed. These illuminate properties of the Bay's motion and raise some further questions.

The report summarizes, mainly in a series of diagrams, the results of an investigation of the temperature distribution in a region of Lake Michigan, roughly bounded by Lat. 43 degrees 00' and 43 degrees 30' N, during the period of summer stratification in 1963. Measurements were made with bathythermographs from a railroad ferry vessel and from a research vessel, which was also used, at a mid-lake anchor station, as a platform to measure the vertical distribution of current speed and direction. The measurement program was designed to test the writer's predictions (Mortimer, 1963) that a dominant component of the internal wave pattern, in Lake Michigan in summer and in regions remote from shores, could be described in terms of Poincare waves with characteristic periods close to but always less than the local inertial period (17.5 hr) and with associated currents exhibiting clockwise rotation of the same periodicity and following an elliptical track. The report is prefaced by an illustrated account of internal wave (long wavelengths) and current patterns, associated with Kelvin and Poincare waves, in a rotating, two-layered, rectangular basin of uniform depth and of Great Lakes dimensions. Events observed in Lake Michigan are interpreted in terms of this model. (Author).

Meg Files’ new novel is set in Michigan in the early 60s, when the worst thing a girl could do was get herself “in trouble,” when domestic violence remained hidden in silent basements. It tells the stories of Dulcie White, a bright, confused college girl distracted by sexual discoveries and the power of her boyfriend’s neediness, and track star Lonnie Saxbe, who is caught up in his own confusions and compulsions. The Third Law of Motion offers an intimate look at the subtleties and the complexities of the dynamics between a battered wife and a violent husband, where nothing is so simple as a fist punched through a wall.

Four species of non-indigenous Asian carp are expanding their range in U.S. waterways, resulting in a variety of concerns. Three species -- bighead, silver, and black carp -- are of particular note, based on the perceived degree of environmental concern. Current controversy relates to what measures might be necessary to prevent movement of Asian carp from the Mississippi River drainage into the Great Lakes through the Chicago Area Waterway System (CAWS). Contents of this report: Background; Potential Impacts; The CAWS; Federal Response to Asian Carp; Litigation; Canadian Concern; Congressional Interest: Current Legislation; Funding and Authority for Ongoing Actions. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.

Internal wave dynamics in lakes (and oceans) is an important physical component of geophysical fluid mechanics of ‘quiescent’ water bodies of the Globe. The formation of internal waves requires seasonal stratification of the water bodies and generation by (primarily) wind forces. Because they propagate in basins of variable depth, a generated wave field often experiences transformation from large basin-wide scales to smaller scales. As long as this fission is hydrodynamically stable, nothing dramatic will happen. However, if vertical density gradients and shearing of the horizontal currents in the metalimnion combine to a Richardson number sufficiently small (
