ASLO 2017 Aquatic
About The Meeting
In 2017, ASLO will return to one of its most popular locations – Honolulu, Hawai′i. This is an important meeting to address water issues and promote scientific exchange across the freshwater to marine continuum. The meeting will also embrace the Hawaiian cultural perspective linking land, water, and peoples. ASLO invites you to participate in this biennial meeting and to take part in the dialogue among limnologists and oceanographers from around the world.
The conference theme, “From the Mountains to the Sea” emphasizes the connectivity of our planet’s aquatic systems, and underscores the urgent need to share knowledge, insights, discoveries, and different world views about the lakes, rivers, streams, aquifers, wetlands, and oceans that comprise our Earth’s hydrosphere. For over a thousand years, Native Hawaiian lifestyle exemplified a model relationship between people and landscape. The successful integration of culture and resource management along natural watershed boundaries, ahupua′a, that run from the mountains (mauka) to the sea (makai), was, and continues to be paramount.
Thus, the theme is particularly fitting for the venue, as those who participate recognize and examine the interconnectedness of aquatic systems.
As part of the ASLO meeting experience, specially planned excursions will provide an opportunity to experience the physical beauty and cultural uniqueness of Hawai′i.
