Check it out: Comprehensive map reveals greatest sources of stress on the Great Lakes

Researchers build a comprehensive map of the greatest sources of stress on the Great Lakes.

Researchers have put together a comprehensive map that reveals the greatest sources of stress on the Great Lakes. The map shows how “environmental stressors” are changing the future of an ecosystem that reportedly holds 20 percent of the world’s fresh water.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the Great Lakes constitute the largest surface freshwater system on the planet. More than 30 million people reside in the Great Lakes basin. The EPA notes that the impact of their daily activities directly affects the Great Lakes environment.
