Going in to the GLEON17 meeting, I had no idea what to expect. Prior to my arrival in Korea, my only involvement with Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) had been through the fellowship program, and I wasn’t sure whether my experience led by Paul Hanson, Kathie Weathers, Hilary Dugan, and Grace Hong would be representative of the whole GLEON group. I needn’t have worried. Looking back on my first GLEON meeting, four words come to mind: welcomed, valued, engaged, and inspired. (more…)

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.
