2. The Climates of the Long-Term Ecological Research Sites
The Climates of the Long-Term Ecological Research Sites. 1987. Report maintained on-line Each LTER site maintains a climate database and at many sites climate data represent the longest data set available. Increasing attention to possible ecological consequences of global change requires an understanding climate variabilities and the potential for rapid directional climate change. This electronic report describes climatic variability, climatic change scenarios, and individual climate and water budget analyses performed at 18 LTER sites. Greenland, D.

20. Guidelines for Measurements of Woody Detritus in Forest Ecosys
LTER Network Office Publication #20: Guidelines for Measurements of Woody Detritus in Forest Ecosystems. This publication describes some of the most common methods used to quantify the amount and dynamics of woody detritus in forest ecosystems. A hierarchical scheme is presented that will help assure data comparability for intersite studies.

Greenland, David. (ed). 1994. El Nino and Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Sites. Publication No. 18. LTER Network Office: University of New Mexico, Albuquerque USA. 57 pp. Six papers, or shorter contributions, describe studies of analysis of climatic, or proxy climatic, data at or near the following five LTER sites: Sevilleta (NM), Niwot Ridge (CO), Andrews (OR), Konza Prairie (KS), and North Temperate Lakes (WI). LTER areas and regions for the most part display El Nino signals consistent to those already found in continental scale studies.

14. Guidelines and Sample Protocol for Sampling Forest Gaps
Abstract Runkle, James R. 1992. Guidelines and sample protocol for sampling forest gaps. Gen.Tech.Rep.PNW-GTR-283. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 44 p. Comparative studies of forest structure and dynamics require standardized methods. A protocol for sampling forest canopy gaps is presented. Methods used in published gap studies are reviewed. The sample protocol will be useful in developing a broader understanding of forest structure and dynamics through comparative studies across different forest ecosystems.

12. Technology Development in the LTER Network
This report was prepared in response to a request from the National Science Foundation to analyze the status of the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network technical supplements and to assess future technical needs. It provides a history of technical supplements in 1989 and 1990, and a snapshot view of several important technologies across the Network as of September 1990. Since that time, use of Ingres as a relational database management system has become more widespread across the Network.

10. Proceedings of the 1990 LTER Data Management Workshop
Held in Snowbird, Utah July 26-28, 1990. The LTER Program is unique in that it represents a network. An explicit goal of the LTER program is to study ecological processes that require measurement over long periods of time (years to decades to centuries). The LTER Data Managers recognized these two aspects of the LTER program and devoted their 1990 LTER Data Managers Workshop to the discussion and resolution of several associated problems and challenges in meeting these objectives.
