LimnoSeminar

We have revived our LimnoSeminar series with a new format, making it a bit unique compared to other science webinars. In a nutshell, each LimnoSeminar will have a featured limnology topic. During the first half of the webinar, an invited early-career researcher (ECR) will give a presentation on a featured topic, including a topic overview followed by their own related research. In the second half of the LimnoSeminar, the ECR speaker would join a moderated panel with 2 other limnologists that have expertise in the topic area. An SCL moderator will read questions posed by the audience to the panel, and each panelist would have an opportunity to address each question.

LimnoSeminars will be scheduled on the same day/time each month from October 2020 - May 2021. We have earmarked the second Tuesday of each month at 12:30-13:30 Eastern.

Please complete the registration form here. All registered participants will receive an email with the Zoom webinar link before the scheduled LimnoSeminar event.

Here is the list of speakers and panelists for Fall 2020:

Date Topic Speaker Panelists
