New Orleans was overrun with aquatic scientists last week as folks from all over the world descended on the Big Easy for the conference of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography. Several of us attended, and before the conference began we spent one full day catching each other up on our research and discussing plans for next summer’s field work.
Four members of our group gave talks at ASLO, three of which were specifically about Baikal. Meanwhile, I sat in the audience and wore out my fingers trying to keep up with live-tweeting as much of the conference as possible. For anyone who wasn’t there and wants to read what they missed, I’m posting links to my tweets from our Bai-colleagues’ talks after the jump.
