The Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research (CILER) was established in 1989, with the mission to foster University and NOAA partnerships in the Great Lakes region. As a Center of Excellence located at the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan, CILER is one of sixteen NOAA Cooperative Institutes.

A study by Obenour et al. (2014) suggests that recent increases in cyanobacterial blooms in Lake Erie may be due to factors other than spring nutrient loads.  By using a different analytical approach to analyzing the dynamics of bloom formation, the authors evaluated the potential causes of the increase in toxin-producing microcystis in the western basin.  Their results indicate that neither concentrations of dissolved reactive phosphorous nor increased water temperatures were to blame.
