California Current Ecosystem SiteBytes 2012

This past year, Information Management at CCE LTER has been focussed primarily on reviewing the
current state of data management at our site, with a focus on identifying areas of weakness and
developing plans for improvement. Recent changes have been directed by the newest guidelines
set forth by the Executive Board, as well as the our readiness to work with PASTA in the approaching
new year. This September also marks the fifth month for Scott Gordon, our new Assistant Information
Manager, working in our group.

CCE LTER’s primary data system, DataZoo, stores data from multiple research projects. The data system’s interface presents dataset catalogs specific to project ownership. Currently, there are some datasets contained within the CCE DataZoo data catalog, as well as the data system as a whole. The type of association with LTER varies across this set of data. Some, like a long term weather timeseries from San Diego’s Lindbergh field, are not connected at all with LTER, and are stored in our data system for improved access and to leverage tools built for data exploration and comparison.
