Virtual Issue: The Remote Sensing of Oceans, Estuaries and Lakes

Remote Sensing of Oceans, Estuaries and Lakes

More than 85 articles have appeared in the Limnology and Oceanography family of journals describing the development and use of remote sensing tools to study processes in freshwater and marine systems. This cross-journal collection includes selected influential articles representing work from groundwater to inland lakes, coastal systems and oceans, and an introduction by John Marra.

Virtual Issue: Stable Isotopes in Limnology and Oceanography

Stable Isotopes in Limnology and Oceanography

Over 600 papers using stable isotope studies have been published in L&O over the past 60 years.  This virtual collection begins with a review by P.M. Glibert, J.J. Middelburg, J.W. McClelland and M.J. Vander Zanden, to capture the history of stable isotope analysis for aquatic sciences and its future potential for limnological and oceanographic studies.
