Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography

For more than 50 years, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) has been the leading professional organization for researchers and educators in the field of aquatic science.

ASLO traces its roots to the Limnological Society of America (LSA), which was established in 1936 to further interest and research in limnological science. While the LSA had members working in both freshwater and marine systems, the name did not reflect this diversity until 1948 when the Oceanographic Society of the Pacific merged with the LSA to become the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography.
