Lake Superior State University Selected As Hub

For U.S. Coast Guard National Center Of Expertise For The Great Lakes

David Thompson 0 488 Article rating: 5.0

 ANN ARBOUR, MICHIGAN ~~ October 23, 2021 (LSNews)  Lake Superior State University has been selected as the hub for the U.S. Coast Guard National Center of Expertise (NCOE) for the Great Lakes and the home to its supervisor. The Center of Expertise will examine impacts of oil spills in freshwater environments and help develop effective responses, pursuits that LSSU specializes in, among its numerous other signature programs. This work will be critical in protecting the Great Lakes, as current oil spill response technologies are primarily designed for saltwater environments. These developments build upon earlier steps by U.S. Sen. Gary Peters of Michigan to secure $4.5 million for the initiative and pass legislation establishing the Great Lakes NCOE in 2018.
