Getting Settled

By Trista McKenzie I have been in Australia for four days now, and so far it has been a relatively easy transition. I am a PhD student at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa working with Henrietta Dulai and during my time in Australia, I am working with Isaac Santos at the National Marine Science Centre, which is part of Southern Cross University in Coffs Harbour. My research here involves …

Traveling Light? Yeah Right…

Breena S Riley I like to travel, but I hate being underprepared. It is my nature to worry perhaps more than I should. I hate not being completely self-sufficient when traveling. Because of these reasons, I end up overpacking. Before a major trip, I usually make a packing list about two weeks before I leave. It starts out reasonable enough. I start out by including the items that I must …

Can you hear me now?

By Wiley Wolfe Until recently, I have taken for granted my ability to communicate with people anywhere on the globe.  When I returned back to San Diego after ASLO 2019, I took the suggestions of past participants and ramped up my planning and communication with both my collaborators and labmates about my LOREX project. This was via video conference calls, emails, and in-person meetings. I was especially motivated to make progress because …

Your hardware could have a catastrophic event (e.g. hard drive failure, power supply failure) and there goes all your time and energy. This is a concept I attempt to hammer into my own students. Even with this, I …

LOREX 1.0 – Getting Warmed Up

By Eilea Knotts Test test test. Can everyone hear me? Can everyone see me? No? Good. This is a blog! I wanted to start blogging ASAP because I never blog. I always thought about it but never had the time. I mean really…who does…okay…lame excuse. I could make the time if I really wanted to but apparently I didn’t. Anyway, before I start rambling for pages. Let me just say …

Announcing the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange program

ASLO is pleased to announce a new NSF-funded initiative: the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange (LOREX) program. As all ASLO members are keenly aware, water bodies often span multiple political boundaries, so international collaboration in the aquatic sciences is a must. However, formal training to prepare the next generation of scientists for such activities is not widely available. The LOREX program aims to fill that gap. The ASLO LOREX program will …
