Latest Data Releases
06/04/2015 – Data Release
Finalized salinity, temperature and pressure data from GCE MicroCAT sonde moorings near sites GCE1, GCE2, GCE3, GCE6, GCE7, GCE8, GCE9, GCE10 and the new GCE11 freshwater tidal forest site in the Altamaha River are now available in the GCE Data Catalog and GCE Data Portal. In addition to the original 30-minute-interval data, daily-summarized data files were also added to the GCE Data Catalog as additional downloads for all new and existing sonde data sets. More information about GCE moorings is available at http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/research/mon/sounds_creeks.htm.

GCE Project Announcements
11/24/2015 – Award
The Wetlands Lab at Indiana University was awarded a three year grant from the National Science Foundation. The $665,000 award, entitled "Collaborative Research: Human alterations of sediment delivery to the coast – Legacies of land use, coastal wetland accretion, and future vulnerability to sea level" brings together researchers from Villanova University, Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of South Carolina to investigate the stability and persistence of tidal marshes along the U.S. east coast from Massachusetts to Georgia. The Wetlands Lab will oversee collection of data from the Altamaha, Edisto (SC) and Cape Fear (NC) Rivers. For more information, contact Chris Craft at firstname.lastname@example.org.(contact Chris Craft for additional information)
10/28/2015 – Monitoring Program
The fall monitoring for 2015 went very well, with support from the GCE technicians, members of the Pennings and Silliman labs, and a mysterious masked field assistant. We collected data on disturbance, plants, marine invertebrates and recruitment of marine invertebrates. Over the coming months, the GCE technicians will process samples of soil (for salinity) and invertebrates (for size-frequency distributions) to supplement the data collected already.

10/27/2015 – Employment
The UGA Marine Institute (UGAMI) is advertising for an Academic Professional, to develop and provide oversight of the Institute’s residential instructional programs for University students. The candidate will also assist the Director with communications and proposal preparation. The position is based primarily at the UGA Marine Institute on Sapelo Island, with significant travel duties to the UGA main campus in Athens. A terminal degree in Marine Sciences or a related field and university-level teaching experience are required.
For a complete job description, contact Barbara Price in the UGAMI office: email@example.com(contact Merryl Alber for additional information)
09/19/2015 – Announcement
A crew from PBS NewsHour visited UGAMI this past August as part of a story about coastal climate change. On the first day we went to the SALTEx site (with Chris Craft, Ellen Herbert, and Dontrece Smith), then up-river to the tidal freshwater site at GCE 11, and finally to UGAMI where they interviewed Fan Li about her mesocosm experiment. On day 2 I showed them around UGAMI and then took them out the flux tower (with Chuck Hopkinson and Jacob Shalack). The story and accompanying video are currently featured on the PBS website http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/coastal-ecologists-construct-time-machine-sea-level-rise/.(contact Merryl Alber for additional information)
