- Site Database (SiteDB)
The network office maintains reference information about all 26 LTER sites.
Information is presented in a uniform format for each site, called a 'site profile'.
This information at Site DB
can also be accessed directly by hoving your mouse over the LTER logo
to the left of this website.
- Bibliographic Database
The LNO maintains an
LTER All-Site Bibliography
of all publications,
by site, author, year, title, publisher or reference type. At MCR we synchronize
our local database of citations
to match the Network Office.
- Personnel Database
Personal profiles for the more than 1800 scientists and students registered with
one of the 26 sites or othewise affiliated with the LTER Network are searchable
in the LTER Directory.
Each LTER site's information manager keeps track of mail lists for their site,
using the Network Office's personnel database.
Individuals can update their own information.
MCR maintains a separate local
database of personnel.
- Climate and Hydrology Database Projects (Clim/Hydro DB)
is a centralized server providing open access to long-term meteorological and steamflow records
from a collection of research sites, including LTER sites.
is migrating to the Network Office in 2010.
MCR contributes meteorologic data monthly to ClimDB as
daily aggregate values queried from our near-real-time
data stream in the
Digital Moorea system.
- Data Catalog (Metacat)
"Data are one of the most valuable products of the LTER program.
The LTER Network seeks to inform the LTER and broader scientific
community by creating well designed and well documented databases
and to provide fast, effective, and open access to LTER data via
a network-wide information system designed to facilitate data exchange
and integration. Currently, the
LTER Data Portal
contains entries for
over 6000 ecological datasets from 26 LTER Network research sites.
" -- LTER Network Office
MCR stores metadata for all public datasets in the
and retrieves from that catalog to display our web pages.
- EcoTrends Data Portal
is an LTER Network Cross-Site synthesis project
to which MCR contributes several datasets.
Because a time-series must have a minimum of 10 years,
legacy data were made available from the MCR site prior to its
inception as an LTER site in 2004. These datasets are updated annually.
- Remote Sensing Archive
LTER Network maintains a
Remote Sensing Archive
of spatial data acquired for research projets and activities within the
LTER Network. Currently no image data from MCR are listed.
MCR was not yet an LTER site at the time of the initial data acquisitions and NASA projects.
However, MCR received a collection of Landsat (ETM, L7, and MSS) image data from the network office in 2010
which we offer in our data catalog as reference type datasets
- Media Gallery (Photo Albums and Graphics)
The LNO collected images from each site to offer in an online
LTER Media Gallery.
As well as photographs from each site,
group pictures from meetings
and the official NSF and LTER logos are available.
These images are used by the news media and by NSF for outreach.
