GCE Project Announcements

10/17/2018 – IM News

We are pleased to announce the release of new web forms for submitting and revising data set documentation (metadata) and uploading data files to the GCE Information Management office. These forms are intended to replace both the legacy Excel metadata template used by researchers to prepare submissions, and the Access forms used in the GCE IM office. These new web forms were developed to streamline the data submission process and simplify metadata entry and management for GCE participants and information managers alike as we transition into GCE-IV.

10/13/2018 – Monitoring Program

Each fall we monitor the plant community, benthic invertebrates, barnacle recruits, and soil salinity at over 10 sites around the GCE domain. This is the 19th year that we've done it! Thanks to everyone who's helped over the years.

Fall monitoring 2018 is underway

09/21/2018 – Coastal News

National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) social scientists published findings from a survey of coastal Georgia's permanent residents, seasonal residents, and visitors detailing what the three groups know and value about the region's ecosystem services. The survey — whose study area includes the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve and Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary — addressed observed changes in abundance of key resources and prioritization of management goals, as well as a participatory mapping component that asked respondents to rank thirteen social value types and place points on a map corresponding with those values.

08/14/2018 – Website Addition

In early 2017 we added a Long-Term GCE Data page on the private GCE website to highlight our long-term data resources and help GCE researchers prepare for writing the GCE-IV renewal proposal. This page provides links to summary tables and comparison plots to simplify discovery of long-term data sets and help visualize key long-term data trends (see this article from March 2017 for more information).
