Topsail Turtles

submitted by: dehartclark
Topsail Island, North Carolina is a northern nesting beach of threatened Loggerhead Sea Turtles. Here the residents have helped protect the turtles that visit the island during the nesting season. Beach walkers watch for turtle nests, pick up trash and report injured turtles. The island commerce has decided not to import new sand like most beaches, so the composition of the sand for incubation of turtle eggs doesn't change. The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center...

Metadata Driven Analysis: Global Warming and EcoTrends

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is
We show the value of documenting your ecological and biological data files with rich-content, quality metadata that conforms to a common specification, such as the Ecological Metadata Language (EML). Here we demonstrate a couple of synthesis analysis projects that corroborate and expand scientific findings. The analysis was carried out fast due to the availability of standardized metadata records (in EML). We also show how to use the EcoTrends store front, for long-term ecological...
