BATON ROUGE – LSU College of the Coast & Environment Dean and Professor Chris D’Elia is one of 20 fellows and one of eight sustaining fellows named by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, or ASLO, this year. D’Elia first joined ASLO in 1971.
For more than 60 years, ASLO has served as a prestigious professional organization for researchers in and educators of aquatic science. It has more than 4,000 members globally. In 2015, ASLO initiated their Fellows program to honor outstanding ASLO members who have volunteered their time and efforts to ASLO programs. Sustaining Fellows are recognized for continual excellence in their contributions, commitment, and service to the association and aquatic sciences.
“I have been a member of ASLO since I was a graduate student because I am committed
to ASLO’s focus on marine, estuarine and freshwater science and its societal relevance
through its annual meetings and highly regarded journals. I am proud to have been
recognized with a fellowship this year,” D’Elia said.
This year’s fellows will be honored at a reception during the 2019 Aquatic Sciences Meeting on Monday, February 25, prior to the ASLO Business Meeting.
