Postcards from the Field

GLEONite students and postdocs have been working on some exciting research projects this past year, so we invited them to send us “Postcards from the Field.” Below, we share with the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) community insights into some of these projects with a rapid tour around the globe (starting on the left and moving right by longitude in the map below) to get ready for the GLEON 19 All Hands’ Meeting. We’re looking forward to seeing you at Mohonk Lake soon! -GLEON Student Association

Sampling locations of the research ventures. We start at the left location and move right sequentially by longitude.

In spring 2013/2014, GLEONites from the Northern and Southern Hemispheres undertook a challenging spring sampling campaign called Spring Blitz. This Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) project was a coordinated effort from researchers around the world to study and link changes in water column stability to plankton diversity during the onset of stratification. Spring Blitz makes use of the GLEON network of sensors in lakes with differing stratification regimes and was the focus of several graduate student PhD theses at Lake Erken, Mt Bold Reservoir and Milltown.
