Latest Data Releases

02/17/2018 – Data Release

The data set PLT-GCET-1801 (Spartina alterniflora aboveground biomass patterns from Landsat 5 TM imagery (1984-2011) and external driver data used in multivariate analysis.) by John O'Donnell and John Schalles was added to the GCE Data Catalog. This data set is part of John O'Donnell's thesis work.

09/25/2017 – Data Release

Data from the Schlumberger groundwater well loggers deployed at the SALTEx research site have now been updated through 04-Aug-2017. Two loggers are deployed in the SALTEx well measuring water pressure, salinity and temperature - one deployed at the well bottom and one near the surface. The well pressure data are corrected for atmospheric pressure and converted to water level in meters relative to NAVD88 based on RTK-GPS elevation of the logger and well metrics. Provisional data and plots are available on the private GCE website here, and finalized data sets will be added to the GCE Data Catalog in the coming months.

09/22/2017 – Data Release

Two new Duplin River Radon activity data sets were added to the GCE Data Catalog by Rick Peterson, including results from ongoing Radon monitoring studies conducted from 2012-2016 ("Radon Activities in the Duplin River near Sapelo Island, Georgia") and a 2016 transect survey ("Radon Surveys in the Duplin River near Sapelo Island, Georgia from July 2016").

01/30/2018 – Personnel News

The work of former GCE graduate student Alyssa Gehman, who recently completed her PhD with Jeb Byers at UGA, is currently featured in the UGA Research article "Parasites and hosts may respond differently to a warmer world" by Beth Gavrilles. Long-term water temperature data from the GCE hydrographic monitoring program were used for modeling host responses.

01/22/2018 – Education News

The 2018 GCE Schoolyard LTER workshop will run from July 7-14, 2018. The workshop will be based at the UGA Marine Institute on Sapelo Island. Teachers divide their time between doing research in outdoor settings alongside GCE scientists and graduate students and discussing ways to implement the information and experiences into their own teaching settings. See the Schoolyard 2018 web page for more information.

01/05/2018 – Website Addition

As mentioned previously, NSF is now placing particular emphasis on ensuring data referenced in published papers are archived and available online. However, few GCE publications currently contain links to data sets, making it hard for us to demonstrate we are meeting this expectation.

12/30/2017 – Website Addition

Over the past decade NSF has dramatically increased requirements for managing and archiving research data in RFPs for both new and renewing grants. In particular, program officers have been looking for evidence that the data behind major publications cited in annual reports and renewal proposals are archived and available online. For LTER programs there are additional expectations to demonstrate use of long-term data in publications and research design.

11/27/2017 – Sapelo News

Weather Underground terminated their WeatherCam upload service on Nov 1, 2017, interrupting our access to images recorded by the Creek Cam deployed behind the UGA Marine Institute. We have now set up our own local FTP service, and re-established uploads on Nov 27, 2017. The latest image can be viewed on the GCE Current Conditions web page, and historic images can be browsed by year and month at http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/ugami/creekcam/.
