4 What is the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network? A grassroots network of –People: lake scientists, engineers, information technology experts –Institutions: universities, national laboratories, agencies –Programs: PRAGMA, AS-Forest Biogeochemistry,US-LTER, TERN, KING, EcoGrid, etc. –Instruments –Data Linked by a common purpose and cyberinfrastructure With a goal of understanding lake dynamics at local, regional, continental, and global scales

5 Driving Rationale for GLEON Predict lake ecosystem responses to natural and anthropogenic mediated events Build an international multi-disciplinary community of researchers to advance lake science through development of a global lake ecological observatory network (GLEON) Develop new scientific insights and paradigms through a global network of sensored lakes Better integrate aquatic science with information technology and sensor development.

10 US GLEON Team Response to NEON Request for Information How do changes in climate, land-use, and invasive species alter lake metabolism and consequently ecosystem services through biogeochemical, biodiversity, and hydroecological responses? Climate change alters lake metabolism and phenology by altering dissolved organic matter (DOM) loading, thermal structure, and extent of anoxia. Changes in land use alter lake metabolism by changing nutrient, contaminant, sediment, and DOM loading. Invasive species alter lake metabolism by changing plankton community structure and biomass and hence water transparency. available on

12 Nordic Supplement Update Funding for Meeting and Students Make linkages between –US and Nordic Countries –Limnology and IT Sensor for Microbes: Autonomous Microbial Genosensors (AMG) –Key People Trina McMahon Thorsten Bleckner Stefan Bertilsson Eva Lindstrom David Fries

13 The Current Model Portable Lake Metabolism Buoy North Temperate Lakes LTER Wisconsin Instrumented Platforms make high frequency observations of key variables send data to web-accessible database in near real time

14 Scalable instrumentation and cyberfrastructure is critical We can do this scale now

15 Problematic, but possible with todays cyberinfrastructure

16 Scale needed to answer regional/continental questions Not currently possible

17 Addressing the Scaling Challenge NSF NEON Award Collaborative Research: Automating Scaling and Data Processing in a Network of Sensors: Towards a Global Network for Lake Metabolism Research and Education –UCSD, UWI, IU, SUNY-BU Automate –Instrument management –QA/QC and Event Detection –Modeling and analysis Streaming Data Architecture –Web Services, workflows, portals –Streaming data middleware –Common software roll Broaden Involvement of Students

18 Tony Fountain Sameer Tilak Ken Chiu et al. Planning the cyberinfrastructure

19 Streaming Data First Steps to a Parallel System Rationale –Establish a test system distinct from production system –Allow users to compare functions, ease of use Status –Purchased National Instrument data logger, will install when arrives, in next couple of weeks. –Streaming data off of Campbell datalogger; and feeding it into the DataTurbine (interface exists between RBNB Data Turbine and Campbell data loggers) –Also interface exists between RBNB Data Turbine and relational databases (e.g. Oracle) –Using Real-time Data Viewer (RDV) client to visualize the data streams. –Developed code to get data from a National Instrument datalogger into DataTurbine (part of NEON activity) –Will obtain templine, DO Sensor, Buoy, Radio/Antenna Supported in part by NSF Autoscaling award –See Sameer Tilak for questions on DataTurbine –See Luke Winslow for experience of learning Note –DataTurbine is open source, work by T. Fountain –Proposal Submitted to NSF to modify and extend DataTurbine to support environmental observing system applications. T. Fountain PI.
