Ten years ago, a relatively small group of lake scientists, information managers and information technology experts met in San Diego alongside experts on coral reefs in what we now consider to be the first GLEON meeting. G1, though of course none of us called it that – in fact the name GLEON didn’t yet exist – started an adventure in doing network science.
The goal of the first meeting was to explore whether developing an international network that deployed and made use of high-frequency measurements on lakes and coral reefs made sense scientifically, socially, and practically. It resulted in what we now know as the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network, or GLEON, a thriving, energetic, and creative network that has brought an international community of scientists together. But back then, we had only a dim inkling of what GLEON would become a decade later. (more…)

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.

The Pacific Rim Application and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA) 26th meeting was held in Taiwan in April with the underlying theme of “Living with Big Data.” Recent efforts of the GLEON – PRAGMA collaborative scientific expedition were shared at a group session in the meeting, and challenges and milestones of this collaboration were identified.
The PRAGMA 27th meeting will be held in October at Indiana University Bloomington just before the GLEON meeting. The new conceptual interdisciplinary challenge, a “Hackathon,” will be operated at PRAGMA 27, and GLEON members are encouraged to participate in this event.

As this is a transition period for the GLEON Fellowship Program, it is a good time to reflect on the past cohort and look towards the next group of fellows. The third and final workshop for the first cohort took place at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York, USA in January 2014. The fellows could not help but feel the ecosystem perspective oozing from the walls of the Cary Institute, soaked up from years of housing an abnormally high concentration of ecosystem ecologists.

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.
