NETLAKE Summer Training School: A Workshop for Both Early Stage Researchers and Lifelong Learners

By Liz Ryder and Eleanor Jennings

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.

GLEON Fellowship Program: Looking Forward, Looking Back

By Jake Zwart and Hilary Dugan

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.

GLEON Buoy Data Used in a Variety of Ways

Recent Bard Center for Environmental Policy (CEP) graduate Alicia Caruso delved deeply into the uses of GLEON data and found that high-frequency buoy data is being shared widely, and a new collaboration with database managers may improve data accessibility to promote greater collaborations with a broader audience of GLEON members and local lake managers. As part of a master’s thesis project, Alicia aimed to answer several questions relating to GLEON and the uses of high-frequency data collected on GLEON buoys worldwide. These include questions on what is currently happening with the data that GLEON is collecting, how it can be used, what benefits and challenges are involved with communicating these data both within the organization and with non-academic users, and how that communication could be improved. Answers to these questions were determined through the use of surveys and interviews.
