Saros named Fellow of Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography

Jasmine Saros has been named a Fellow of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology & Oceanography (ASLO).

ASLO Fellows are recognized as having achieved excellence in their contributions to the association and to aquatic sciences.

Saros is a professor of paleolimnology and lake ecology with the University of Maine School of Biology and Ecology and the Climate Change Institute.

Paleolimnology is a multidisciplinary science that uses the physical, chemical and biological information in sediment profiles to reconstruct past environmental conditions in lakes.

Saros applies information from field observations and bioassays to the sediment records, and uses patterns in the sediment record to pose testable hypotheses about mechanisms driving observed changes.

She is part of the 10-member 2019 class of ASLO Fellows.

The ASLO Fellows program was initiated in 2015 to acknowledge and honor members who consistently contribute to the society through its journals, conferences and committees.

The commitment and service of ASLO Fellows have enabled the society to advance the sciences of limnology (study of the biological, chemical and physical features of lakes and other bodies of freshwater) and oceanography.

ASLO Fellows will be honored Feb. 18 at the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, and at a reception prior at the 2020 ASLO-SFS (Society for Freshwater Science) Summer Meeting in Madison, Wisconsin.

ASLO traces its roots to the Limnological Society of America (LSA), which was established in 1936.
