Latest Data Releases

06/17/2022 – Data Release

The data set 'Monthly Vegetation and Invertebrate Population Monitoring near the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER Flux Tower' has been updated to include data through December 2021.

The data are available in GCE data catalog:  https://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/public/app/dataset_details.asp?accession=PLT-GCEM-1610

03/11/2021 – Data Release

Historic Palmer Drought Severity Index data sets and plots for Georgia Division 9 have been updated in the GCE Data Portal to cover the period of January 1895 to February 2021. These indices are useful for characterizing the timing and severity of drought events in the long-term climate record. The data were downloaded from NOAA and converted into tabular data sets with decoded state and date columns to simplify filtering, plotting and analysis. More information about these indices and data sets is available here.

03/02/2021 – Data Release

Provisional CTD data from the GCE Mini-Cruises are now processed and online.  https://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/private/app/ctd_data.asp

GCE Project Announcements

06/21/2022 – Field Program News

GCE field vests can be borrowed from the GCE technician office. These are especially helpful when working off island, as they will make you look more official, which may make bystanders less suspicious about what you're up to. The vests are a comfortable, lightweight mesh fabric, so they won't make you hot, even in the heat of summer. And the cheerful lime green color will make a real fashion statement, whether in the marsh or at two-way fish camp!

The GCE is participating in DRAGNet, a global, distributed experiment looking at recovery from disturbance. GA salt marshes are strongly affected by the DRAGNet disturbance (roto-tilling) and show very little recovery after one year. The plots will be disturbed three years in a row, after which we'll follow recovery. To date, the experiment has been curated by excellent undergraduate Zahrria Johnson from the University of Houston.
