In addition to co-chairing GLEON, Kathie is also co-leading the GLEON Fellowship Program's training of next-generation team science ecologists, and GLEON's commitment to the U.S. government-led Climate Data Initiative, its Water Theme and the GLEON Lake Observer App development.
See the full list of 2015 ESA Fellows here: http://www.esa.org/esa/about/esa-awards/esa-awards/esa-fellows-program/e... . Congratulations to GLEON friend Kathy Cottingham and all the ESA Fellows this year.

Evelyn Gaiser, lead PI of the Florida Coastal Everglades LTER program and your fellow GLEONite serving on GLEON Steering Committee and co-leading the TTG Working Group, meets U.S. President Obama on Earth Day (22 April 2015). She is interviewed by the NPR on 'All Things Considered' where she talks about the ecosystem change, impact on the environment and water quality at the Everglades coastal area, and the restoration plan. Evelyn is also quoted in the Washington Post, subsequent to her invited visit to brief the White House and the Congress about emerging threat of sea level rise.
Here is the link to the full text of President Obama's remarks on the Impacts of Climate Change, delivered at the Everglades National Park. For more details on the Earth Day Everglades activites, please visit the Florida International University (FIU) news link .
With GLEON's commitment to the U.S.-led Climate Data Initiative (CDI) and its 'Water Theme', we are glad to see more members and affilated networks' effort to address climate change, develop ecosystem, water-resource planning and resilience tools for local communities through data-driven innovation.

GLEON joins the DataONE federation as its 26th Member node.
As GLEON's members submit data to the repository, that data will become available via its DataONE Member Node to other researchers, enabling richer scientific discovery. More information about DataONE Member Nodes can be found at https://www.dataone.org/current-member-nodes.
To search for data provided by GLEON members, visit the GLEON specific portal: https://poseidon.limnology.wisc.edu/metacatui/ >
Or via ONEMercury on DataONE:
About GLEON: GLEON is primarily a network of people with more than 500 members in 50+ countries and growing rapidly. About 30 percent of the members are students who belong to the GLEON Student Association (GSA), a vital part of the global network. GLEON is a network of lakes with more than 60 lake observatories across six continents. GLEON is also a network of data, including high frequency data gathered from sensors mounted on research buoys that are deployed in lakes across the globe. GLEON is the leading organization devoted to the study of lakes and reservoirs, and serves as a model for grassroots international research collaboration.
Visit http://gleon.org/data to learn more about GLEON Data Policy, Best Practices, partnership with DataONE and CUAHSI and how each data repository works (including a comparison chart: DataONE v.s. CUAHSI).
About DataONE: DataONE enables universal access to data and also facilitates researchers in fulfilling their need for data management by providing secure and permanent access to their data. DataONE offers the scientific community a suite of tools and training materials that cover all aspects of the data life cycle from data collection, to management, analysis and publication.

The Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) announced today its commitment for the Obama Administration's Climate Data Initiative (CDI), an ambitious new effort to address climate change and develop ecosystem and water-resource planning and resilience tools for local communities through data-driven innovation. As part of the CDI's Water Theme unveiled by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy today, GLEON is launching in 2015 a pilot of a mobile application, the Lake Observer app, for citizen scientists to record lake and water quality observations.
The Lake Observer app (http://gleon.org/node/4370) supports the goal of making water-resources data open and accessible, and advances the GLEON mission to understand, predict and communicate the role and response of lakeks in a changing global environment. GLEON is also teaming up with Esri and the U.S. Geological Survey to create a crowd-sourcing platform to facilitate the collection and sharing of lake- and water-related information across the globe.
In addition to the new open datasets on water and ecosystems, new geospatial tools were added to climate.data.gov today. GLEON joins a host of 16 public, nonprofit and private sector organizations that made commitments to devote expertise and technological capabilities to leverage climate data in ways that build resilience to the impacts of climate change.

We would like to give a shout-out to GLEONite Chris McBride and the colleagues at LERNZ (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand, the University of Waikato), congratulations on making the KuDos Science Excellence Awards finalist (in the 'Hill Laboratories Laboratory Technician Award' category)! See more of Chris' work in the Rotorua Lakes and through GLEON, featured in the press coverage at The Scoop NZ (or University of Waikato news release) and LERNZ.
The KuDos Awards dinner will be held on 9 October 2014.
Here is a #throwback video for you while waiting for the KuDos Awards winners annoucement:

From the Blog.GLEON editorial desk:
"We are excited to announce to the GLEON community that "Blog.GLEON" has been rolling since August 2014. As the self-explanatory name suggest, Blog.GLEON is a space online for GLEON related news, managed by enthusiastic GLEON volunteers and GSA leadership team. Wed would like to use this medium as the substitue for the previous "GSA Newsletters", by providing the articles more timely and in reader-frieindlier format than lengthy PDFs. This space is not only for students but for everyone in GLEON! If you have any news or update you would like to share with the community by contributing a blog post, with some images or graphs, please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org). We all look forward to hearing from you.

On Darwin's Day (12 Feb) we present "The Buoys of GLEON" Calendar 2014 to you! Many thanks to Chris McBride and many site members for the efforts. We hope this is an enjoyable pilot version for future creative projects that any members can initiate in showcasing different monitoring platforms and sharing important dates across sites in GLEON!

GLEONite Elvira de Eyto and colleagues at the Burrishoole Catchment in the west of Ireland has launched a new website that provides real-time ecological data from the Loughs Feeagh & Fernance monitoring stations. Check it out for the monitoring and research efforts for the lakes, fish and rivers.
