The International Society of Limnology (SIL) is planning to document the changes in aquatic systems in response to altered human activities amid the COVID-19 pandemic and if possible, facilitate performing a systematic global-scale assessment to characterize such impacts. As a first step, this database is aimed to compile preliminary information (metadata) from researchers who are/will be collecting data from aquatic systems (e.g. water quality, food-web structure, fisheries, etc.) during/immediately after the crisis period. As the second step, we hope to invite researchers to upload their data to a digital repository and facilitate collaborations among them to conduct a systematic global-scale study.
Please note that information you provide here except your personal details (A1 to A4) will be visible to the public.
We highly appreciate your contribution. When collecting samples, please practice social distancing and be aware of any government regulations to protect yourself and others.
You can also share your data via our social media, using the hashtag #HealingInlandWaters.
