ClimDB/HydroDB/EcoTrends Network Database Integration Path

The LTER Network supports a number of existing synthesis database applications, including EcoTrends and ClimDB/HydroDB (ClimHy), which are maintained as isolated projects and without direct coordination between one another. As part of the LTER NIS development process, these separate database applications will be integrated into the PASTA Framework.
