LTER training lab seeks to extend use to research projects

The LNO maintains a state of the art laboratory for use in training and research activities. Recently, the LTER Training Lab was upgraded with 25 new CPUs and monitors. In addition, the lab is designed to allow easy installation of new software, and allow participation through videoconferencing. During the last four years, the lab has been used frequently for training sessions and less frequently for research working groups. We are looking to increase use of the lab for research and synthesis, so if you have a working group looking for a venue, please check it out.

Keep those data sets rolling in

It has been over a year since the LTER Network was first introduced to PASTA, the backbone of the new Network Information System.  Today, the Network Information System holds 19,293 data packages, of which 3,888 have been contributed by LTER sites and 15,404 are from the EcoTrends project. We are happy to report that the NIS Data Portal ( and PASTA have been up and available on the Internet since their release in January 2013 without any major interruptions (for that matter, they have been up without any minor interruptions).
