SAFER (Sensing the Americas’ Freshwater Ecosystem Risk from Climate Change) is an inter-American, interdisciplinary network integrated by researchers, students and technology support. Geology, biology, paleolimnology, hydrometeorology, physical limnology and social sciences are all applied as tools for the evaluation of project objectives, and this diversity is reflected in the SAFER student projects.
Most of the SAFER students have participated in one or more Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) meetings, and since they will attend GLEON 16, this article is focused on their present research interests.

It is with joy that the GLEON Collaborative Climate Committee (CCC) and Graduate Student Association (GSA) welcome Paula Zapperi and Thomas Harmon as new members of the CCC, and Liz Ryder as the new co-chair of the CCC. They were elected to be the member of the committee in February 2014, and we are excited to see the new enthusiasm and contributions they have to offer.
It was a sunny November afternoon at La Salada, a shallow lake, when we said our goodbyes to the GLEON 15 meeting participants. From the 4th of November to the 8th, 2014, the meeting was held mainly in the city of Bahía Blanca, Argentina.
It was an extremely fun, productive and successful meeting of the minds and of old and new friends. On Monday, the pre-meeting GSA Workshop started the week-long meeting, where researchers and postdocs joined 56 students from diverse countries such as China, Brazil, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and USA, as well as Argentina.
The GLEON Student Association (GSA) welcomes Facundo Scordo as the new co-chair elect. He has a background in Environmental Sciences and is currently enrolled as a Ph.D. candidate in the Geography department at the Universidad Nacional del Sur in Argentina. Facundo was elected to the new leadership role in February 2014 and is expected to take the co-chair position, after the G16 meeting in 2014, and the chair position, after the G17 meeting in 2015. Congratulations, Facundo!
