The Glossary of the Great Lakes is divided into three sections.

Section I

Section I contains an alphabetically arranged list of scientific terms, as well as state, federal, and international regulations, initiatives, and organizations. The glossary is designed to be useful both for gaining a general sense of what a term means and for getting more detailed answers to questions. Each of the longer entries begins with a simple overview statement, sufficient for many readers, followed by more detail. Linked terms within a definition are defined elsewhere in the glossary. Acronyms are listed in italics next to each term.

Section II

Section 2 contains acronyms and abbreviations with their most commonly used pronunciations and definitions. Acronyms for which no pronunciation is given are typically just spelled out.
