Carbon Cycling on Lakes (COCLAKE) Project: the Story of Brazil-Denmark Collaboration via GLEON

by Ludmila Brighenti

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.

GLEON 15: Participation Review of the Meeting in Argentina

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.
