Special Topics in Limnology and Oceanography e-Lectures

Special topics lectures are encouraged for ideas or events in which experts in their field can introduce the latest scientific topics.  For example, we anticipate that special topics related to ecological impacts or restoration of oil spills in the environment would be a timely submission considering the now two decades old Exxon Valdez and recent Deepwater Horizon oil spills.

PowerPoint is required to view these e-Lectures. In some cases, a lecture may be linked to multimedia files in order to play (these files are included in the ZIP file). Full lectures are available to members only. Partial PDF versions are provided as previews of the complete Powerpoint lectures.
