Coordination and Reports related to EML Congruency Checker

Current experience using Ecological Metadata Language (EML) datasets contributed to the LTER NIS indicates that a significant fraction is not of sufficient quality for automated use. I propose to spend one month (160 hours) over the course of 2011 on three tasks which will help sites contribute “PASTA-ready” EML datasets, and which communicate LTER activities vis-à-vis Ecological Metadata Language to broader communities.
