Abstract

The GCE-LTER project and partner organizations (SINERR, UGAMI, USGS) collect extensive environmental monitoring data around Sapelo Island on the SE Georgia Coast. In order to put these observations into a broader spatial and temporal context, it is also important to compare these data with other environmental monitoring observations. Long-term, spatially-extensive climate and hydrologic databases maintained by the LTER Network (ClimDB/HydroDB), USGS (National Water Information System) and NOAA (National Weather Service) are valuable resources for broad-scale comparisons (fig.1). For example, the LTER Network's ClimDB/HydroDB database contains approximately 7 million daily records for 281 monitoring stations at 39 LTER and USFS sites, providing critical support for LTER cross-site comparisons. USGS and NOAA collect long-term climate and hydrologic data from a vast array of locations across North America (~8000 real-time USGS monitoring stations and ~12,000 active NWS COOP weather stations), supporting truly large-scale regional analyses.
