Florida Coastal Everglades LTER - Climate Data
Climate Data

 
Our Climate Data portal includes links to FCE and LTER network climate data. The LTER network climate database (ClimDB/HydroDB) is a relational database that stores climate and hydrological data for 26 LTER sites (including FCE) and allows users to query and download their data of interest, as well as, graph their query results.


FCE LTER Climate Data

LTER Climatological & Hydrological Data Access (ClimDB/HydroDB)



FCE LTER Climate Data

The Florida Coastal Everglades LTER Program collects climate data, such as temperature and precipitation, from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) for five meteorological stations that bound the FCE’s study area. These data are archived in the FCE research database and are made available for download through the FCE Data Table of Contents or FCE Related Data Section. These same data are submitted to a centralized common LTER Network database called ClimDB.
LTER Climatological & Hydrological Data Access (ClimDB/HydroDB)

The National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program and many U.S. Forest Service Experimental Research Stations collect and maintain extensive, long-term ecological databases including streamflow and meteorological measurements. These databases have been widely used in intersite comparisons, modeling studies, and land management-related studies. To facilitate intersite research among the network of LTER sites, individual sites maintain local climate data in local information systems while a centralized site continually harvests, updates, and provides access to all sites' data through a common database. Common distribution report formats and graphical displays have been established to meet specific needs of climate data users. Funding from the U.S. Forest Service has allowed the climate data prototype (ClimDB) to be improved and expanded to include hydrologic variables (HydroDB).
