In January, as part of its mission to enhance collaboration across the LTER network, the NCO called for Synthesis Working Group proposals. The request elicited 24 highly competitive proposals that together harnessed data from all 24 LTER sites. Selection was based on scientific merit, contribution to LTER Network science, and use of novel approaches.
We would like to congratulate the three proposals funded at this time:
The 2016 LTER science council was held May 16-19, 2016 at the LTER Network Communications Office in Santa Barbara. To kick off the meeting, each site presented three slides on their current research related to populations. Those presentations are available at the links below:
The LTER Science Council met May 16-19, 2016 in Santa Barbara, CA at NCEAS, the location of the LTER Network Communications Office. Sadly, the "field trip" to the Moorea Coral Reef Site had to be virtual, but attendees had the opportunity to get a taste of the site and research underway there through slide shows, imagery and an in-depth talk by the Moorea site PIs. Participants also got to meet the NCO and NCEAS staff and sample Santa Barbara's history, culture, and hospitality.
The Moorea Coral Reef and the LTER Network Communications Office (LTER-NCO) look forward to hosting the 2016 LTER Science Council meeting at NCEAS in Santa Barbara, CA. While we can't transport you to the Gump Lab, we're doing our best to turn the meeting location into a tropical paradise.
The topical focus of the Science Council meeting is spatial and temporal distribution of populations selected to represent trophic structure, with breakout discussions on:
We are pleased to announce the first ever publication in Nature's Scientific Data resource with a PASTA data package DOI (doi:10.6073/pasta/379a6cebee50119df2575c469aba19c5). A global database of lake surface temperatures collected by in situ and satellite methods from 1985–2009 by Sapna Sharma, et al. (2015) was published and featured this week at Scientific Data.
