Back in June, the Southeast Climate Science Center (SE CSC) launched a new database and web interface that allows the search and display of information about ecosystem observational networks and monitoring sites in the Southeast.
The Southeast Global Change Monitoring Portal (GCMP) is a project of the DOI Southeast Climate Science Center and aims to support the efforts of multiple federal, state, and other organizations by providing a centralized, comprehensive catalog of observational networks associated with aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in the southeastern United States. The Southeast GCMP region of interest encompasses all or part of several Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) in the southeastern US and Caribbean.
The database consolidates information about data (metadata) that is collected by observational networks or monitoring programs, and the locations where data are collected, when available. The GCMP portal allows displaying and searching by different geographic criteria and by the type of measurement data collected by the network. Information about how to access the observational data is included.
The GCMP is in the first phase of development and is being actively populated with new program and site information.

Do you work for or know of a group that makes biological, chemical or physical observations in air, land, or water in the Southeast? Help let others know about your monitoring efforts!
If you are a monitoring program representative, please contact Cari Furiness for a simple spreadsheet upload template. If you are aware of corrections to information currently in the GCMP or know of a monitoring project that should be included, please also contact Cari Furiness at the SE Climate Science Center.
