Dr. Krista Longnecker is a Research Specialist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Krista is an accomplished aquatic scientist with broad, cross-disciplinary experience in biological and chemical methods within a diversity of aquatic ecosystems. In 2019 Krista received Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s W. M. Marquet Senior Technical Staff Award, “for extraordinary accomplishments in engineering, instrument development, information systems or oceanography, and a demonstrated commitment to mentorship and partnership with junior technical staff members.” Dr. Longnecker says, “I look forward to working with ASLO and the editorial board of Limnology and Oceanography: Methods to advance the field of method development and the techniques used for the sciences of limnology and oceanography.”

Limnology and Oceanography: Methods is published by ASLO in partnership with John Wiley & Sons. The journal was established in 2003 and publishes high-quality peer-reviewed manuscripts whose primary focus is methodological and deals with problems in the aquatic sciences. These may include, but are not limited to, papers outlining new measurement equipment, techniques for analysis or observations, methods for interpreting data, analyses of metadata to compare techniques, methodologies in teaching and communicating, and invited reviews and syntheses.

After 21 successful years at the helm of L&O: Methods, founding EIC Paul Kemp is set to step down at the end of July this year. “I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to guide L&O: Methods over more than 20 years, and grateful to be able to turn it over to someone as capable as Krista,” says Kemp. “I look forward to seeing what she makes of it!” 

ASLO President Dr. Pat Glibert adds, “L&O: Methods is a unique journal that has been on the cutting edge of methodologies in limnology and oceanography for over two decades. We are grateful to Paul Kemp for his tireless efforts making the journal what it is today and excited to see the direction Krista’s leadership will take L&O: Methods in the future. Please join us in welcoming Krista!”
