Dr. Weathers is co-Chair of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON). GLEON is a grassroots, collaborative network that collects and synthesizes high-frequency data from lakes worldwide to sense and forecast change (www.gleon.org).
Weathers’ collaborative research associated within GLEON ranges from the impacts of major events (e.g., Hurricane Irene) on lake function around the globe to how high frequency data serve as a common language to link citizens, scientists, and students around the world in research, education, and outreach.
GLEON: Going Global with Freshwater Science
Dr. Weathers is currently PI of a research project that trains graduate students in synthesis and analysis of sensor data as well as in the science of team science and associated skills. (http://fellowship.gleon.org/).
