GLEON: the Science of Team Science

Many people come to the Northwoods to get away from the rest of the world.

But at the University of Wisconsin Limnology Research Station at Trout Lake, scientists are trying to do just the opposite.  

Since 2004 Director Tim Kratz has been one of the pioneers putting together a network of limnologists, or scientists studying lakes, around the world.  It’s called GLEON, the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network.  WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski sat down with Kratz to talk about how GLEON is part of a changing way of doing science.
