National Science Foundation awards major grant to Cary Institute
Date:12/19/2011

Millbrook, NY The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies has received a $1.6 million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop an innovative graduate training program. The multi-year project builds on the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON), an international, grassroots collaborative of more than 300 scientists, technology experts, engineers, and citizens using environmental monitoring to understand how human actions and extreme weather impact lakes.

The GLEON Graduate Fellows Program will help train the next generation of scientists in the leadership, research, and communication skills needed to preserve and protect freshwater quality in the face of mounting pressure from population growth and climate change.

Dr. Kathleen C. Weathers, a Senior Scientist at the Cary Institute and a co-chair of GLEON, will lead the new Fellowship program. She notes, "We depend on lakes and reservoirs for drinking water, recreation, and other servicesyet we are degrading them by activities that result in pollution, watershed development, and the introduction of invasive species. At the same time, these ecosystems are also vulnerable to extreme weather events, such as tropical storms and hurricanes."

GLEON participants employ high-tech monitoring buoys to record real-time conditions in lakes. Their data can help pinpoint human and climate driven problems, as well as assess the effectiveness of existing management practices. Student training will help bring the powerful insights provided by GLEON into broader practice.

Weathers says, "Our experience with GLEON has shown us that scientific advances require not only creative use of technology and new data analysis techniques but, perhaps more importantly, scientists trained to collaborate and to communicate their findings broadly with the scientific community and the public."

Fellows, along with their advisors, will participate in a series of proj
