What is ASLO?
As the leading professional organization for researchers and educators in the field of aquatic science, ASLO works to provide for their needs at all phases of professional development. ASLO is best known for its highly rated research journals, its interdisciplinary meetings and its special symposia. The society supports increasingly important programs in public education and outreach and public policy. It strives to encourage student participation and to increase opportunities for minorities in the aquatic sciences. ASLO's mission statement is:
ASLO fosters a diverse, international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, advances public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research, and promotes scientific stewardship of aquatic resources for the public interest. Its products and activities are directed toward these ends.
ASLO welcomes and invites anyone interested in the aquatic sciences to join! Membership categories are available for both professionals and students. For more information, click on the "General Information" and "Member Benefits" links at right.

- Request for Information, CUAHSI Hydrologic Measurement Facility
- The CUAHSI Hydrologic Measurement Facility (HMF) has been given pilot funding to develop a vision for a community facility that would provide support for large-scale field eco-hydrological measurements. They need to know the degree of community support for this effort; if the proposed activities are those that are most important for your research; and what additional support is required that has not been included. Please consider responding to an online survey at: <https://websurveyor.net/wsb.dll/22344/hmf_survey_advisory_group.htm.

- Robert G. Wetzel Memorial Fund
- ASLO announces formation of the Robert G. Wetzel Memorial Fund and solicits your contribution to it. This fund honors the memory of Bob Wetzel and his contributions to limnology. The Wetzel Memorial Fund, which will be managed by the International Society for Theoretical and Applied Limnology (SIL), will be devoted to Bob's dearest cause, which was support of young limnologists throughout the world who might otherwise be unable to participate in global limnology. Our goal is to make the fund large enough to be self-sustaining, so that it will be a long-standing reminder of Bob's contributions to limnology. For further information, please contact Denise Johnson, SIL Administrative Assistant, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Public Health, Department of Environmental Sciences & Engineering, CB # 7431, 124 Rosenau Hall, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-7431.
