Hydrologic Manuscript Published and Available!

Lynker is proud to announce the recent publication of “Signatures of Hydrologic Function Across the Critical Zone Observatory Network”, written by our Water Resources Scientist, Dr. Adam Wlostowski and his outstanding team of coauthors. This study characterizes hydrologic dynamics of fifteen catchments of the US Critical Zone Observatory Network where it’s hypothesized that our understanding of subsurface structure would illuminate patterns of hydrologic partitioning.  For the link to the early view of the manuscript in the Water Resources Research Journal, click here:

Lynker Wins NOAA NEFSC Contract!

Lynker won 2 NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) contracts!

The Lynker Team is excited to support the NEFSC Fisheries Monitoring and Research Division (FMRD), including the Fisheries Sampling Branch’s (FSB) Northeast Fisheries Observer Program (NEFOP). Lynker also won as a subcontractor on a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) contract to support data services, analysis, administration and management at the NEFSC FMRD.

Under these awards, Lynker employees will focus on the collection, processing, and management of fishery data and utilization of industry platforms to obtain data on fish biology, environmental variables, and socioeconomic factors in support of stock assessments and ecosystem-based fishery management. Activities will also support at-sea observer and monitoring operations aboard commercial vessels and at shoreside facilities, training and certification of observers and monitors, data quality and management activities, and advancement of new technologies to support these activities.

Lynker Wins Award to Continue Supporting NOAA’s MBNMS!

Lynker is thrilled to receive an award for a 4-year contract to support NOAA’s Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS). This win is a continuation of our support to MBNMS, having won the previous 5-year contract.

Designated in 1992, MBNMS is a federally protected marine area offshore of California’s central coast. It is one of our nation’s largest marine sanctuaries, larger than Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks combined. We are honored to continue supporting MBNMS and protecting this underwater treasure!

Our service to MBNMS involves assisting sanctuary managers and staff with a variety of functions related to resource protection and government and community relations in Monterey. We also support MBNMS’ visitor center operations at the Coastal Discovery Center (CDC) in San Simeon, CA and Sanctuary Exploration Center (SEC) in Santa Cruz.
The CDC provides interpretation, education, and outreach about natural and cultural resources in coastal California, from Cambria to Big Sur. The SEC is the premiere visitor center for MBNMS and affiliated with the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, a non-profit partner of the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries.

There were over 150 exhibitors and 70 plus sessions covering the latest trends in global aquaculture and burgeoning technologies driving the field. Among the many associations, societies, and companies present, some of innovative ideas put forward regarded native Hawaiian fishing practices, NOAA entanglement simulators, and emerging techniques for micro-algae production.

Lynker is also a key partner to HATCH (hatch.blue) an international accelerator program designed to help aquaculture innovators promote their solutions to customers around the world. Lynker is working with HATCH and the National Energy Laboratory (NELHA) of Hawaii in the Hawaii Ocean Science and Technology park (HOST) to support ongoing research efforts and assist in bringing them to market.
