Michael Kehoe, SENS postdoctoral fellow and GIWS associate member, has received funding from SINERGIA/National Swiss Science Foundation for the project “A Flexible Underwater Distributed Robotic System for High‐Resolution Sensing of Aquatic Ecosystems”. It is a multi-disciplinary project which will use autonomous underwater vehicles in conjunction with innovative instrumentation to measure the physical, chemical and biological parameters of freshwater lakes at extremely high resolution. This will allow greater understanding of how fine spatial structure in lake water columns contribute to phytoplankton population dynamics and diversity. A particular focus is on how phytoplankton blooms occur. Michael's role in the project is to measure the sinking rate of individual phytoplankton cells using a methodology he developed during his PhD.
GIWS congratulates India’s Rajendra Singh on the award of the 2015 Stockholm Water Prize. Patricia Gober had the honour of presenting the Prize Committee’s citation in a splendid ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden on August 26. The King and Queen of Sweden were in attendance. The Stockholm Water Prize is considered the top prize in the world for water-related achievements. Please view the video of the evening for event highlights.
