Bonjour! The GLEON 16th meeting is approaching next week. This issue covers multiple GLEON related projects, including the PRAGMA-GLEON Expedition (1) (2), SAFER project, and NETLAKE project. Many of these topics may come up in discussions during the meeting, and we encourage you to check out the articles to learn more about the recent activities of the projects. If you are new to GLEON, you might like to read the COCLAKE (Carbon Cycling on Lakes) project post, which features the “Network Partnership Program (NPP)” in which the majority of GLEON attendees have participated and enjoyed in the past.
If you are participating in the G16 meeting, we wish you safe travels, and look forward to seeing you all soon!

A lake is like a gigantic living creature that inhales and exhales carbon and exchanges energy with its surrounding environment. I became interested in this process and wanted to understand and predict whole-lake carbon exchange systems in Brazilian lakes. I worked on this topic for my Ph.D. (which I completed recently!), and deployed a high-frequency monitoring buoy to obtain data. This led to a new collaboration between researchers in Brazil and Denmark: Carbon Cycling on Lakes (COCLAKE), looking at the similarities and differences of temporal and tropical lake carbon cycling systems. All of this started from a simple conversation at a GLEON meeting. With the GLEON 16 meeting fast approaching, I wanted to share my story for those who are attending.

The first NETLAKE (Networking Lake Observatories in Europe, EU COST Action ES1201) training school took place from 12th to 17th June 2014 at the Erken Laboratory, Uppsala University, in Sweden. A multi-disciplinary group of 23 trainees from 19 countries took part. The training focused on automated monitoring and high-frequency data analysis, and included techniques for building simple temperature sensors, deployment, data analysis and processing, data visualization and practical data management.
