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.

GCE Project Announcements

01/22/2023 – GCE IT News

Internet connectivity is an increasingly important resource for researchers and visitors at remote field stations like the UGA Marine Institute. Last year UGA provided funding to upgrade the microwave transmitter that serves as the primary internet connection to the mainland, increasing bandwidth from about 100 Mb/s to 1 Gb/s on campus. UGAMI has also recently added dedicated fiber connections to selected trailers and houses in the residential areas near campus, but broader access to these residential connections has been limited due to poor Wifi signal strength.

01/09/2023 – Announcement

The University of Georgia Marine Institute on Sapelo Island is seeking to hire an Academic Professional to develop and provide oversight of the Institute’s residential instructional programs for University students. The candidate will also serve on the UGAMI leadership team as the Assistant Director for Academics, mentor students conducting independent research, and teach field courses in their area of specialization. The position is based primarily at the UGA Marine Institute on Sapelo Island, with travel to the UGA main campus in Athens and other destinations around the state (approximately one trip per month). Although it is possible to commute to Sapelo via ferry, residence on-site is required when programs are in session (including some weekends). Housing is available at the Marine Institute.

01/07/2023 – Meeting

The GCE membership and friends met in Athens in January 2023 to review recent research findings and discuss possible directions for the GCE V proposal. The meeting was well attended, presentations were excellent, and discussion lively. We have a strong sense of direction heading into a year of writing the GCE V proposal, and will be refining ideas with multiple discussions during the upcoming year. Thanks to Iona and Adam for organizing all the meeting details!

12/07/2022 – IM News

All pages and files on the GCE website now require the more secure HTTPS (SSL-encrypted HTTP) protocol for access over the internet. Previously only password-protected portions of the GCE website required encryption, but in recent months we have eperienced a major uptick in sophisticated malware attacks so we made this change to prevent potential hijacking of user sessions via injected web code (so-called "Man in the Middle" exploits). This change also brings us into compliance with UGA Information Security guidelines and improves compatibility with Chrome, Safari and other web browsers that default to HTTPS for all links.
