Our Most Precious Resource

Fresh water is one of the most precious and valuable resources needed by humankind.

Less than one percent of Earth's water is fresh, liquid, and accessible, and most of that is found in huge lakes scattered around the globe. The Large Lakes Observatory expands and communicates knowledge about the past, present and future of large lakes worldwide, where most of the water depended upon by human society is found. We invite you to learn more about research, education and outreach at LLO or contact us for further information.
