US Long-Term Ecological Research Network
Climate database project: a strategy for improving information access across research sites
Abstract
To facilitate intersite research among the network of Long-Term Ecological Research sites, information managers are exploring strategies for linking individual site information systems. A prototype to provide climatic summaries dynamically has been developed and serves as one model for improving access to data across sites. Individual sites maintain local climate data in local information systems while a centralized site continually updates and provides access to all sites data through a common database. Common distribution report formats have been established to meet specific needs of climate data users.
