The International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) is a scientific organization made up of researchers studying the Laurentian Great Lakes, other large lakes of the world, and their watersheds, as well as those with an interest in such research. IAGLR members encompass all scientific disciplines with a common interest in the management of large lake ecosystems on many levels.
We are a member-run professional association that holds an annual Conference on Great Lakes Research. Our Journal of Great Lakes Research is a highly respected professional publication with broad distribution.

JGLR paper calling for more stringent Lake Erie hypoxia-based loading targets is highlighted in Michigan news
A study recently published in JGLR has been showcased in a press release through the University of Michigan News. The findings came out of the Lake Erie EcoFore project, a 5-year collaboration funded through NOAA's National Ocean Service. The study documented recent trends and impacts of eutrophication-related properties linked to Lake Erie hypoxia and harmful algal blooms. Conclusions from the research include revised guidance on pollutant loading targets, such as the need for a 78% reduction in dissolved reactive phosphorus to achieve a 2,000 km2 decrease in Lake Erie hypoxic areas. | 02/27/14
