The scientists and staff of UMD's Large Lakes Observatory (LLO) invite the public to board and tour the Blue Heron research vessel and indulge in science. During 2014 we will continue to offer the popular "LLO Science Friday," with presentations on scientific topics on the last Friday in each of the spring, summer and fall months. This year the dates for "LLO Science Friday" will be May 30th, June 20th, July 18th, August 22nd and September 26th.
Our June 20th Science Friday will feature a presentation by Dr. Sam Kelly of the Large Lakes Observatory. His presentation is entitled 'Underwater rivers, internal waves, and turbulence patches: details that affect the circulation of the ocean and large lakes.'.
The R/V Blue Heron will tie up on "LLO Science Friday" in the Twin Ports Harbor at the Great Lakes Aquarium, 353 Harbor Drive.
