The overall goals for students attending the GLEON all-hands meetings are:

  1. To continue to improve and develop student involvement within GLEON;
  2. To provide students with an opportunity to interact with an international assemblage of lake scientists, information technology specialists in an informal, highly interactive setting;
  3. To encourage students to confuct research using GLEON data or affiliated resources in collaboration with the GLEON community.
