John Crawford receives ESA Aquatic Award

John Crawford is the 2014 recipient of the Exceptional Promise in Graduate Research Award from the ESA Aquatic Ecology Section, in recognition of his paper "Ebullitive methane emissions from oxygenated wetland streams" in Global Change Biology.  And John will be talking to the folks at WORT 89.9 FM here in Madison about those methane bubbles in streams on 30 June.

Good luck Professor Casson!

Nora Casson is heading back to Canada and a faculty position in the Geography Department of University of Winnipeg.  Tough to see her go, but tempered by knowing how great she'll be as a professor. And of course, the collaboration will continue!

Research in the media

John Crawford's just-published paper "Ebullitive methane emissions from oxygenated wetland stream" and Noah Lottig's CSI paper on water clarity "Using 3521 lakes and 74 years worth of citizen secchi data to reveal broad-scale spatial patterns and temporal trends in lake water clarity" have been attracting media attention- e.g., see:

A great week at JASM 2014

Everyone had a great week in Portland at the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting and delivering talks across several sessions. Lots of great representation from current CFL grads and many, many CFL alums, including plenary speakers Pat Soranno and Julian Olden.

Nice work Luke Loken!

Luke Loken successfully defended his M.S. thesis on the biogeochemistry of the St Louis River Estuary-- great job Luke!  Forward-
