The American Academy of Underwater Sciences is pleased to announce the 2018 AAUS Diving for Science Symposium, October 9-13, 2018, hosted by University of California Berkeley and University of California Davis in Lake Tahoe, CA. We welcome diving scientists, students, diving safety officers and anyone with an interest in diving science to participate in this event.

The week will be filled with technical workshops ranging from AUP repair, PSI and DAN courses to diving workshops covering underwater archaeology, altitude diving and much more. Following opportunities for diving as well as social and networking events, we will wrap up the week with the national DSO meeting, a two-day science symposium, poster session, and annual awards banquet.  

Shimmering in myriad shades of blue and green, Lake Tahoe is the USA’s second-deepest lake and, at 6255ft high, it is also one of the highest-elevation lakes in the country. Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, straddling the border of California and Nevada, it’s cobalt blue color, biologically diverse alpine setting and remarkable water clarity is legendary. Ancestral inhabitants of the Lake Tahoe area - the Washoe tribe - called the Lake "Da ow a ga," which means "edge of the lake;" the tribe considers Lake Tahoe as a sacred life-sustaining water, and the center of the Washoe world. 

In addition to being a scenic and ecological treasure, the Lake Tahoe Basin is one of the outstanding recreational resources of the United States. It is recognized nationally and globally as a natural resource of special significance. The sun shines on Tahoe three out of every four days. Swimming, boating, kayaking, windsurfing, stand up paddle surfing (SUP) and other water sports take over in summer, as do hiking, camping and wilderness backpacking adventures. Winter brings bundles of snow, perfect for hitting Tahoe’s top-tier ski and snowboard resorts. On the southwest shore, Emerald Bay State Park contains the 1929 Nordic-style mansion Vikingsholm. Along the lake’s northeast side, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park includes Sand Harbor Beach and Spooner Lake, a gateway to the long-distance Tahoe Rim Trail.

AAUS welcomes a new artist this year, Jessie KB Art.  We are excited to see what she will create for us this year!  See her current work at https://www.jessiekb.com and look for the unveiling of the 2018 AAUS print in late summer.
