Research Webinar Series: Storm Impacts on Phytoplankton Community Dynamics in Lakes

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Online - Registration required

View a video recording of this webinar: Storm Impacts on Phytoplankton Community Dynamics in Lakes.

Professor Jason Stockwell, Director of the Wildlife & Fisheries Biology Program and Director of the Rubenstein Ecosystem Science Laboratory at the University of Vermont, will provide an update on an international research project that uses long-term data sets to examine how storms impact phytoplankton in lakes.

The foundation for this work was recently summarized in Storm impacts on phytoplankton community dynamics in lakes, published in Global Change Biology in March 2020. Jason will describe the evolution of this large, team-based approach to science, the path the team has traveled to compile and share data sets from across the globe, and current research efforts and highlights that are emerging from this international venture.

The Vermont Water Center, VT EPSCOR, and others support both Jason’s research. Many funders support the collaborative, international research by members of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON).

The event will take place on Zoom, and registration is required.
