2017 ASLO ABSTRACTS

From February 26-March 3, The Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) will hold its annual meeting in Honolulu, Hawai`i. The LTER Network sites will deliver oral and poster presentations on a wide range of topics, from blue carbon in salt marshes to impacts of the Eastern Pacific "warm blob" and El Niño. In addition, LTER investigators may be especially interested in three all-day special sessions:

  • Thursday, March 2: Ecological Resilience, Non-linear Community Dynamics and Reversibility of State Shifts in Aquatic Ecosystems, organized by Russell J. Schmitt and Thomas Adam of Moorea Coral Reef LTER and University of California Santa Barbara, Karen McGlathery of Virginia Coast Reserve LTER and University of Virginia, along with David Seekell, Umea University
  • Friday, March 3: Long-Term Perspectives on Aquatic Research organized by Stephanie Hampton, Washington State University; Bob Howarth, Cornell University; and Mark Ohman, of California Current Ecosystem LTER and Scripps Institution of Oceanography 
  • Friday March 3: Ecological Impacts of El Niño 2015-16, organized by  Sally J. Holbrook, MCR LTER site, University of California, Santa Barbara; and Mark D. Ohman, CCE LTER site, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD

LTER-related presentations have been organized below by day and time. Please excuse any omissions or misattributions. We will continue to add and adjust this list up until the start of the conference: please contact werth@nceas.ucsb.edu with corrections.
