Great Lakes DataStream, an open access hub for sharing water data, was successfully released last year and currently contains over eight million open data points collected by 47 monitoring groups from across the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin.
Great Lakes DataStream provides a centralized hub for Quebec’s freshwater data to be stored, compared, and used to protect our waters. It is the fourth DataStream hub, joining Mackenzie DataStream, Atlantic DataStream, and Lake Winnipeg DataStream.
We can’t think of a better place to celebrate DataStream’s debut in Quebec than at the region’s first gathering of participatory science leaders, whose mission is to strengthen community-based water monitoring initiatives in the province.
Meghan joined us at the beginning of the year right after finishing her master's degree at the University of Waterloo. Her studies focused on nutrient contamination in the Lake Erie basin. She used long-term data and process-based models to predict past, present, and future nitrogen storage in the surrounding sub-basins of Lake Erie. Meghan will be contributing to the continued development of DataStream by working with data contributors and users across the Great Lakes region and beyond.
In May, the DataStream team gathered in Toronto for the 66th Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research, hosted by the International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR).
