Although undergraduates were the focus of the weekend meeting, comprising nearly half of the 32 participants, graduate students and faculty members also gathered to share data and plan regional research activities for the coming year.
“I had the amazing opportunity to attend the regional NE GLEON conference. There were several students from various institutions with a wide array of majors, backgrounds, and interests.

SAFER (Sensing the Americas’ Freshwater Ecosystem Risk from Climate Change) is an inter-American, interdisciplinary network integrated by researchers, students and technology support.

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.
