Abstract:  Produced by government, and thus avoiding critical comment about government or corporate practices, this atlas is nevertheless a useful resource for those concerned about the future of the Great Lakes region. It provides some excellent background information, including maps with accompanying explanations and diagrams, describing geology, climate, the hydrological cycle, groundwater, wetlands, lakes processes, settlement, and industrialization. The impact of surrounding populations and industries are outlined, and pollution problems are described. Maps detailing types of land use, waterborne commerce, employment and industrial structure, and pollution sources aare particularily valuable for someone seeking an understanding of the problems faced by the Great Lakes region.
