08/25/2014 – Workshop

The CUAHSI Water Data Center, LTER Network Office, and the Critical Zone Observatory National Office are jointly sponsoring a Virtual Workshop entitled "Field Data Management Solutions" to share tools, techniques, and tricks for handling the ever increasing volumes of data that observatories and other field sites are generating.

A series of webinars will be held during September and October 2014 featuring speakers from LTER sites, the CZO data project, and CUAHSI Water Data Center to share their experiences with data management and to share tools that have been developed. Webinars will be scheduled at 9 am PT/12 N ET/6 pm Central European Time to permit live participation from North America, South America and Western Europe at convenient times. All webinars will be recorded and available for viewing after the event at your convenience. (Download the Field Data Management Solutions Flyer).

08/13/2014 – GCE IT News

The weather-proof enclosure for the GCE PhenoCam was left open around 7/15/2014 by persons or factors unknown and the enclosure flooded with water following a heavy rain, causing the camera to fail. The camera has been shipped off to the manufacturer for evaluation and repair, and a loaner camera is being send by the UNH PHENOCAM program. We apologize for the data interruption, and will revise this announcement when our camera is back online. Security measures will be taken in the future to prevent similar tampering.

UPDATE 26-Aug-2014: The GCE PhenoCam has been repaired, and will be redeployed in the next week.

07/22/2014 – Coastal News

The Georgia Court of Appeals on Wednesday ruled that all state waters are protected under Georgia law by a 25-foot vegetative buffer, effectively reversing an Earth Day directive from Environmental Protection Division Director Jud Turner that stripped the protective buffer from the salt marsh.

For more information, see the Savannah Morning News article "Court decision revives Georgia coastal marsh buffer" by Mary Landers.

06/18/2014 – IM News

The GCE taxonomic database, originally developed in 2002, has now been streamlined and updated to support automatic synchronization with the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS). The ITIS database provides authoritative taxonomic information on plants, animals, fungi, and microbes of North America and the world. ITIS is a partnership of U.S., Canadian, and Mexican agencies (ITIS-North America), other organizations and taxonomic specialists. ITIS is also a partner of Species 2000 and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), and provides the taxonomic backbone to the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL).
