Abstract

Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments 1 (2011) [4] It was not unreasonable for a beginning graduate student to assume that everyone else in science was like-minded. A rude awakening met many of us in new interdisciplinary fields as we learned that our submitted work was either too physical for biology or too biological for physics; students in other fields had similar experiences. Part of the problem stemmed from the ultimate frustration among journal editors– that of finding suitable reviewers for material submitted to their journals. In other words, few reviewers had suitable experience and abilities to evaluate interdisciplinary research. [5] Fortunately, times have changed, and many excellent articles, websites, research tomes, and textbooks treat the interface of fluid dynamics and biology, chemistry, or geology. Even the most recalcitrant undergraduate students are learning about Reynolds numbers and analogous nondimensional numbers used to describe competing fluid dynamic processes. Indeed, the role of water as a transport medium for diverse aquatic systems and their processes has emerged as an area of study within the last 10 to 15 years, as is evident from special sessions at conferences and journal articles. Such studies have addressed issues ranging from geochemical transport and
