Contemporary Issues lectures are solicited for ideas or events on topics in Limnology and Oceanography that are in the news and highly relevant to the general public. For example, issues such as invasive species, impacts of warming temperatures on aquatic ecosystems, contaminant loading, eutrophication, toxic algae, ocean acidification, oil spills, or fisheries crashes would be considered timely submissions. Both a broad overview lecture (one class period) as well a small suite (i.e. three to five class periods) of detailed lectures will be offered with the Contemporary Issues lectures.
PowerPoint is required to view these e-Lectures. In some cases, a lecture may be linked to multimedia files in order to play (these files are included in the ZIP file). Full lectures are available to members only. Partial PDF versions are provided as previews of the complete Powerpoint lectures.
