Search the Data Catalog

The Data Catalog allows users to find and access data from the Luquillo LTER program by browsing several lists or by using the Advanced Search capability. At present, the catalog contains 171 LTER and 2 non-LTER data sets categorized as either Short- (less than six years) or Long-term and also as either Ongoing or Completed. Data set IDs range from 1 to 204, but not all numbers in this sequence have been used

With the exception of the LFDP Census data (#119), which is collected every five years and the CTE Plot Treatment (#165), collected only after trimming events, we update all of our non-spatial and non-meteorological ongoing data sets every 2 Years in this website and in the LTER Network, data repository hosted by EDI. The Met data from El Verde Field Station are updated each month or after data has gone through our quality control processes.
