What is SLOI?

The Satellite Lake Observatory Initiative develops remote sensing applications for lake monitoring in the Upper Great Lakes States. It is a concerted effort between scientists of the three universities that participate in the Upper Midwest RESAC: the University of Minnesota, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Michigan State University.

This web site focuses on the research and applications developed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It is designed to:

    • inform the public and volunteers who participate in the project about our research goals and methods,
    • provide background information on the use of satellites for lake monitoring, and
    • show results from our research as they are produced

The Satellite Lake Observatory Initiative was created as part of the Upper Midwest Regional Earth Science Applications Center (RESAC), a consortium of universities, state and federal natural resource agencies, and industries in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. SLOI is currently supported by the NASA Affiliated Research Centers (ARC) program.
