Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography [ASLO]
The Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography is an international aquatic sciences society that was founded in 1936. For more than 50 years, it has been the leading professional organization for researchers and educators in the field of aquatic science. The purpose of ASLO is to foster a diverse, international scientific community that creates, integrates and communicates knowledge across the full spectrum of aquatic sciences, advances public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research, and promotes scientific stewardship of aquatic resources for the public interest. Its products and activities are directed toward these ends. With more than 4500 members worldwide, the society has earned an outstanding reputation and is best known for its journals, its interdisciplinary meetings, and its special symposia.
American Geophysical Union [AGU]
The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is an international scientific society with over 60,000 members representing over 148 countries, committed to advancing Earth and Space science. Established in 1919 as a committee within the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, AGU was independently incorporated in 1972. Since its founding, AGU is dedicated to furthering the sciences of geophysics through the individual efforts of our members and in cooperation with other national and international scientific organizations. These goals are met through publishing scientific journals and other technical publications, sponsoring scientific meetings of various sizes throughout the year and a variety of other educational and scientific activities.
AGU galvanizes a community of Earth and space scientists that collaboratively advances and communicates science and its power to ensure a sustainable future.
The Oceanography Society [TOS]
The Oceanography Society was founded in 1988 to disseminate knowledge of oceanography and its application through research and education, to promote communication among oceanographers, and to provide a constituency for consensus-building across all the disciplines of the field. In addition to sponsoring scientific conferences, TOS presents prestigious awards such as The Walter Munk Award presented in recognition of distinguished research in ocean acoustics, and The Jerlov Award for contributions to the field of ocean optics. OCEANOGRAPHY magazine, published quarterly by TOS, has become widely respected throughout the marine science community.
