Lake Conservation Webinar Series: Limnology in Space
While limnologists have long been aware of spatial variability in physical, chemical, and biological conditions in lakes and rivers, quantifying this variability can be challenging. Many researchers and managers operate under an assumption that surface waters are well mixed and that sampling at a one or a few locations is sufficient to capture prevailing conditions. We developed the “Fast Limnology Automated Measurement (FLAMe) platform to test this assumption and investigate the spatial variability in water chemistry within aquatic environments. This presentation will introduce examples of both notable homogeneity and pronounced heterogeneity among different water quality attributes, times, and lakes, and highlight key opportunities provided by the capacity to rapidly map surface water conditions in lakes and rivers.

Dr. Emily Stanley
Professor @University of Wisconsin-Madison
Emily Stanley is a professor and Wayland Noland Distinguished Chair in the Department of Integrative Biology and Center for Limnology and the leader of the North Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research program at the University of Wisconsin Madison. She received her B.S. degree from Yale University and Ph.D. from Arizona State University. Stanley’s research group studies ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry of rivers and lakes, including effects of small dam removals in Wisconsin. Stanley was named an Aldo Leopold Fellow in 2006, an Ecological Society of America Fellow and a Society for Freshwater Science Fellow in 2018 and received ASLO’s G.E. Hutchinson award in 2018 in recognition of her outstanding and synthetic contributions to the understanding of nitrogen and carbon cycling in lakes and streams.
