Latest Data Releases

06/19/2020 – Data Release

Peter Hawman in Deepak Mishra's lab submitted four data sets including eddy covariance analysis from the GCE-LTER flux tower and the Mishra flux tower at the Grand Bay NERR site in Mississippi as well as leaf area index data from the sites:

MSH-GCET-2006: Eddy covariance 30-minute CO2 fluxes with accompanying biophysical variables from the GCE-LTER flux tower site from December 2018 to January 2020

MSH-NASA-2006: Eddy covariance 30-minute CO2 fluxes with accompanying biophysical variables from the Grand Bay, Mississippi flux tower site from March 2018 to January 2019

PLT-NASA-2006a: Leaf area index for Spartina alterniflora near the GCE-LTER Flux Tower in 2018 and 2019

PLT-NASA-2006b: Leaf area index and above ground biomass for Juncus roemerianus in the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve from 2015 to 2019

06/14/2019 – Data Release

Provisional SALTEx well logger monitoring data are available on the Project Data page through February 2019. 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.

04/26/2019 – Data Release

Two data sets investigating the effects of elevation on surface soil temperature gradients within salt marshes was added to the GCE Data catalog by Merrly Alber and Jessica O'Connell.

MSH-GCE0-1904: Variation in Landsat 8-estimated land surface temperature with elevation from Spartina alterniflora marsh cross sections in the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term Ecological Research (GCE-LTER) site and Virginia Coast Reserve (VCR) LTER sites for winter and summer observations spanning 2013-2018

MSH-GCED-1904: Continuous soil temperature measurements at 10 cm depth from 3 month-long deployments in summer and winter within the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term Ecological Research (GCE-LTER) site in 2017 and 2018

08/26/2020 – Monitoring Program

A wide variety of environmental sensors are connected to the two independent data loggers at the GCE Eddy Covariance Flux Tower, measuring numerous atmospheric, soil and water properties at the site. In addition to contributing to calculation and understanding of atmospheric fluxes, these measurements also represent an additional set of long-term environmental observations that could be useful for many other ecological studies in the GCE domain.

08/10/2020 – LTER News

Sydney Williams from the University of Florida, the Graduate Student Representative for the GCE, will be taking over the LTER network's Instagram for the next two weeks to highlight our system, the research activities going on within it, and the awesome scientists behind it all. A few graduate students have already helped Syndey out by sharing photos of themselves and their project, along with a short description. Please reach out to Sydney if you would like to share the spotlight! 

For those of you on Instagram, the LTER's handle is @lter_community. Feel free to check out our posts in the coming days!

07/31/2020 – Coastal News

The Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) has put together a web page (https://secoora.org/eyes-on-isaias-data-resources/) to highlight data and information related to the Hurricane Isaias, which is currently impacting the Bahamas and threatens to reach coastal Florida and Georgia this weekend. It will be updated as new information becomes available and the track is more certain.
