    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.

      15 February 2000 New Altamaha and Satilla River, ODIS data sets for the major cruises LMER-6 and LMER-9 have been posted and are publicly available for downloading.
      18 January 2000 There is a new link under the Georgia Rivers Data section of the Main Page Table of Contents. This link will take you to the Georgia Historical Coastal Data site which has interesting historical (pre-GARLMER) data sets for the Georgia coastal region contained within the GARLMER geographic area.
