US Long-Term Ecological Research Network

Cross-Scale Interactions

This project will identify and measure the most important cross-scale interactions that control lake nutrients and water quality collecting an unprecedented dataset on lakes, nutrients, and watersheds, including over 5,000 lake ecosystems in 11 U.S. states spanning up to 30 years.

Climate Change, Shifting Land Use, and Urbanization

How will the benefits we receive from our diverse landscapes be sustained as climate, land use, cities, and human demands change?


The Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network is a grassroots network of limnologists, ecologists, information technology experts, and engineers who have a common goal of building a scalable, persistent network of lake ecology observatories.
