L&O Special Issue: Autonomous Instrumentation and Big Data: New Windows, Knowledge, and Breakthroughs in the Aquatic Sciences

The development and deployment of autonomous instrumentation in the aquatic sciences, which has rapidly expanded during the last decade, has led to fantastic new insight into unexplored waters, increased understanding of temporal and spatial dynamics, and amazing discoveries across the aquatic sciences. These tools have allowed us to acquire more data, at higher frequency in time and space, and at ...

L&O Letters Special Issue: Phenological Change in Aquatic Ecosystems

Announcing the 2023 Limnology and Oceanography Letters Special Issue Manuscripts due May 31, 2023 Phenology, the study of seasonal timing of natural phenomena, is a central construct in ecology, focusing on interaction between temporal changes in the physical environment and the structuring of annual organismal, population, community, and ecosystem dynamics. In a warming and more variable climate, phenology is a ...

ASLO takes a step to address the inequity of open-access publication

Early Career Researchers around the world are doing impactful innovative science. Most do not have resources to pay for open-access publication of their work. ASLO has taken a step to help with its Early Career Publication Honor that pays for OA publication by ECRs in need. A new virtual issue of Limnology and Oceanography Letters binds together the first seven ...

A Celebration of Contributions from ASLO’s Raelyn Cole Editorial Fellows

L&O Special Issue on Life in turbulent waters: exploring unsteady biota-flow interactions across scales

Announcing the October 2023 L&O Special Issue Turbulent water motions can influence many aquatic organisms, by regulating biotic processes such as locomotion, grazing, heat transfer, nutrient uptake, and biogeochemical reactions. Conversely, the presence of organisms, such as mussel beds or macrophytes, can generate or enhance small-scale turbulence which then feeds back into larger-scale ecosystem responses. Despite rapid progress in this ...
