NEWS AND NOTICES
This page is for public announcements and notices regarding data sets,
special links and server accessibility. Please check back (and reload this
page) for the most current updates when you first come to the GARLMER site.
16 February 2002
All data files on the Georgia Rivers LMER site have been made available for
public access. No user name or password is required to access any data set.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR USERS OF NUTRIENT DATA FILES: All nutrient data files
have had corrections made to them. These corrections invalidate the old
files. If you have previously downloaded any of these files from the
GARLMER site, or any other source, you should replace the old files with the
new. How do you tell the difference? The Archive entry of the corrected
files (documentation files) will contain the date, 15 February 2002. Any
file with a different date represents an old, uncorrected file that should
be discarded. The Nutrient Methods Manual will be updated in the next few
days. If you need any further information about corrections and changes,
please contact Dr. Bill Wiebe or Joan Sheldon.
29 June 2000
New CTD and ODIS data are now available for each river. There are 115 new files.
Included are the documentation files, their respective data files and summary notes.
These data are from the LMER-3, LMER-4 and LMER-8 major cruises. A special
long-term data set of physical/chemical parameters from a mooring station in the
Satilla can be found under the Other Lab and Field Data section at the end of the
Satilla CTD page. If you have questions concerning these data you may contact
Dr. Jack Blanton or Julie Amft.
08 June 2000
A minor correction has been made to all headers within each LMER-3 CTD data
file for all rivers except the Savannah. Times were corrected to Eastern
Standard Time (originally reported in Eastern Daylight Time). If you have
previously downloaded these files, you may wish to replace them with the
newer, corrected versions.
05 May 2000
Recently a web page for the new Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term
Ecological Research site (GCE-LTER) has come on line and you are encouraged
to follow the link below to learn more about the research and people
associated with this project.
