Latest Data Releases

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.

10/23/2018 – Data Release

Provisional long-term sonde data sets, covering the full period of record at each GCE mooring through September 2018, are now available on the private GCE website and Long-Term Data Plots web page. Both "real-time" 30 minute interval and daily summary data sets and plots are available for each station.

Finalized yearly and long-term sonde data sets through 2017 are also publicly available in the GCE Data Portal, GCE Data Catalog and LTER Data Portal.

10/19/2018 – Data Release

Finalized salinity, temperature and pressure data from GCE MicroCAT sonde moorings near sites GCE1, GCE2, GCE3, GCE6, GCE7, GCE8, GCE9, GCE10 and 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 are also available as additional downloads for all 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

11/08/2018 – Announcement

The Year 6 annual report has been submitted to NSF and is available here:  


Check it out--it has been another productive year!

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.

04/25/2018 – Award

Elena Solohin, a PhD Student in Wetlands Lab at Indiana University, received the Indiana Space Grant Consortium and NASA 2018-19 Fellowship. The one-year, $12,000 award will use remotely sensed (satellite) data to assess tidal wetland vulnerability to future sea level rise along the SE U.S. coast, including sites located in the GCE LTER study area, mainly the Altamaha river estuary. The research will provide educational opportunities and learning experience to students in STEM related disciplines, and will lead to a clearer understanding of human impacts on coastal wetlands.
