Mission statement Developing approaches to detect change and characteristic frequencies in GLEON monitoring data at differing regional and limnological scales
PLAN! 1. At this meeting: test datasets using the Excel add-in Rodionov shift detection method(detecting significant changes in mean and variance) 2. ID other datasets that we want to work with – particularly biological, chlorophyll, DO...

PLAN 3. Are there indices of lake mixing that we can work with? 4. Look at when an ecological shifts occur in different datasets – zoo fish? Are there characteristics frequencies? 5. Compare traditional sampling and high frequency monitoring? 6. Long-term goal: try to utilise s-scan data (in three lakes in Sweden, Finland and Estonia) = sub-surface spectrophotometers – range of absorption bands); need first to develop methods first; deploy more in western lakes?
Next six months...... We want to encourage maybe a student (?) to join us who like add a chapter to their thesis and maybe get a publications out of this but who would time to give to data analyses.
