Important work being by this Loudoun government contractor...

Sometimes work takes you in the dark, under a bridge to fix solar panels in the name of data collection.

A field crew of Lynker staff from the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) Atlantic Operations Branch traveled to Charleston, South Carolina to perform maintenance on two major bridges. Both the Don Holt and Ravenel Bridges are part of the Charleston Harbor Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS®). These stations provide critical real-time data for under-bridge clearance and in conjunction with the nearby meteorological and water level stations, ship captains and pilots find these data invaluable. The Don Holt Bridge required measurement verification and updated Satlink software. The Ravenel Bridge was a bit more involved - crew members discovered a missing solar panel and a shattered solar panel, likely caused by Hurricane Dorian.

Amazing work that Lynker does—they have grown fast while a member of the MEC Leesburg incubator.

Amazing work that Lynker does—they have grown fast while a member of the MEC Leesburg incubator.

For the last two years, Lynker’s Sustainable Pacific Program (SPP) Hawaii (Big Island) team has partnered with Ke Ola magazine to run a series, “Mālama Mokupuni: Caring for Our Island Environment.” Ke Ola is distributed free in thousands of newsstands across the island. Lynker SPP’s Rachel Laderman coordinates the series and has contributed recent articles such as “Mauna Loa Observatory’s Keeling Curve Reveals CO2 Rise to the World” http://ow.ly/iSVn50ydh1v and “Can We Protect ‘Ua‘u, the Hawaiian Petrel?” http://ow.ly/aSw450ydh1w. Additional topics have spread the word on coral reefs and sunscreen, microplastics, and hawksbill turtle conservation. Lynker’s SPP is a program that leverages our regional and national coastal, marine, and ocean expertise – biophysical, sociocultural, economic, and administrative – to meet local needs in a very cost-effective way. Follow @LynkerSPP for more on their programs. http://ow.ly/3gDP50ydh1x

BYRD IS THE WORD. I was just singing Eric Byrd's praises in a Facebook group for virtual assistants, and I realized that I don't express my appreciation for him TO him nearly often enough. Every meeting with Eric leaves me energized, focused, and thoughtful. I can never thank him enough for what he's done to help me with my business.
