Working hard at LEOW 2013!

Demonstration of aquatic sensors at LEOW

LEOW 2012 participants

The first Lacawac Ecological Observatory Workshop (LEOW) was held June 2012 and the second in June 2013. LEOW is designed to train students, technicians, and faculty to use advanced aquatic sensors and dataloggers, stream real-time data, manage large datasets, QA/QC, and analyze large datasets.

LEOW brings in experts on these various topics to give presentations and hands-on demos. Our LEOW resources page is a tool for those participating in LEOW and those unable to attend. After each LEOW, we will continually add new presentations, modules, and videos.
