Lake Michigan in Motion
Responses of an Inland Sea to Weather, Earth-Spin, and Human Activities
Clifford H. Mortimer

Lake Michigan in motion over time, on the surface, and in depth

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.

Clifford H. Mortimer is the former director of the Center for Great Lakes Studies and Distinguished Professor Emeritus of biological sciences at the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee.
