Latest Data Releases

06/14/2019 – Data Release

Provisional SALTEx well logger monitoring data are available on the Project Data page through February 2019. The Schlumberger logger files were corrected for atmospheric pressure and sensor elevation for calculation of water level, and salinity and density were calculated from temperature and conductivity measurements.

04/26/2019 – Data Release

Two data sets investigating the effects of elevation on surface soil temperature gradients within salt marshes was added to the GCE Data catalog by Merrly Alber and Jessica O'Connell.

MSH-GCE0-1904: Variation in Landsat 8-estimated land surface temperature with elevation from Spartina alterniflora marsh cross sections in the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term Ecological Research (GCE-LTER) site and Virginia Coast Reserve (VCR) LTER sites for winter and summer observations spanning 2013-2018

MSH-GCED-1904: Continuous soil temperature measurements at 10 cm depth from 3 month-long deployments in summer and winter within the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term Ecological Research (GCE-LTER) site in 2017 and 2018

 

11/20/2018 – Data Release

Provisional SALTEx well logger monitoring data are available on the Project Data page through September 2018. The Schlumberger logger files were corrected for atmospheric pressure and sensor elevation for calculation of water level, and salinity and density were calculated from temperature and conductivity measurements.

BRUNSWICK, Ga. (May 21, 2019) – Georgia’s beaches are not only vacation hotspots, they’re top spots for nesting shorebirds and seabirds, and for migrating species fueling up for long flights to the Arctic.

05/29/2019 – Field Program News

For anyone too young to remember, "Candid Camera" was a hidden camera comedy show that was a staple of 1940's and 50's television, revived in the early 2000's through re-runs and new episodes. But did you know that we have our own, albeit unintentional, version of Candid Camera at Sapelo? Between the marsh PhenoCam installed at the GCE Flux Tower, the occasionally-working Creek Cam near the lab, and numerous drone flight operations now underway you never know when you'll unwittingly appear in one of our field photos or videos, as the field crew experienced in these PhenoCam images from this morning.

05/29/2019 – Research News

One of the most challenging aspects of working in the marsh is getting out of the boat and into the marsh across the treacherous muddy creekbank. Jacob loves to post pictures of marsh researchers who get trapped in the mud while in transit (if you search the past news items, you can find one of Joe...). An advanced technique, used in the past by Jacob and Ike, and demonstrated here by John, is to bypass the creekbank entirely by parking the boat up on the marsh platform. As shown here, it is then possible to slide over the back of the boat directly onto the firm marsh platform. This technique needs to be applied with care; however, because you can only retrieve the boat on a high spring tide, so read the tide tables twice and park once!
