Abstract

The 6th International Limnogeology Congress (ILIC6) of the International Association of Limnogeology (IAL) was held in Reno, Nevada, USA 15–19 June, 2015. The successful congress brought together a wide variety of academic, government, and industry participants from 20 countries and six continents. The highpoint of the four-day meeting were eight keynote addresses highlighting cutting-edge research in paleolimnology and limnogeology. These addresses were often the focal point of discussions throughout the congress. Among the topics covered in the more than 140 poster presentations included the use of biological proxies to identify paleoenvironmental change due to natural variability and human impact, the evolution of mineral formation in saline lakes, sedimentation deposition processes in Mesoproterozoic lakes, the role of groundwater in lacustrine hydrology, and organic and inorganic contaminant histories in modern lakes.
