5th annual lacawac ecology conference
Saturday September 24, 2016
The Lacawac Ecology Conference (LEC) is our annual fall conference. It provides a unique and historic venue for regional researchers to connect with regional researchers (faculty and students), discuss research ideas in an informal setting, and build new collaborations. The LEC is attended by faculty and students from more than 15 institutions of higher education each year. Registration is $75 and includes breakfast, lunch and snacks. Housing is available in our historic lodge for an additional $30/night.

This year our keynote speaker is Dr. Robyn Smyth from the Bard Center for Environmental Policy. Dr. Smyth's research expertise includes coupling physical and biological processes in lakes and the ocean and aquatic ecosystem management. Current collaborative research projects include modeling the effects of vertical mixing and ultraviolet radiation on primary productivity in the Southern Ocean and understanding the role of climate forcing and hydrodynamics on harmful algal blooms and outbreaks of disease in aquatic organisms in lakes. She is an adjunct scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Milbrook, NY and a member of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) which seeks to utilize high frequency sensor data to better understand and manage lake ecosystems.
