The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Millbrook, New York, is one of the world’s leading independent environmental research organizations. Research at the Cary Institute has been instrumental in informing the Clean Air Act, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and environmental management practices throughout the Northeast, including the Hudson River, New York’s Catskill and Adirondack forests, and the watershed of Baltimore, Maryland.
A new Management Team has been identified to lead DataONE into 2020 and beyond. The DataONE project has flourished under the insightful leadership of Bill Michener and the DataONE Leadership Team, and has been managed for the last nine years under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation DataNet program.
The Chinese Ecosystem Research Network (CERN) is an important part of the knowledge innovation project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences established to monitor China's ecological environment changes, comprehensively study major issues in China's ecological environment, and develop resources in environmental science and ecology. CERN consists of one synthesis research center, five disciplinary sub-centers, and numerous ecological research stations representing diverse ecosystems, including... read more
Publications have long maintained a citation standard for research papers, ensuring credit for cited work and ideas. Tracking use of data collections, however, has remained a challenge. DataONE is pleased to share our latest effort in overcoming this barrier and in demonstrating data reuse with new data usage and citation metrics.
ESS-DIVE (Environmental System Science Data Infrastructure for a Virtual Ecosystem) serves as a repository for hundreds of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-funded research projects focusing on terrestrial and subsurface ecosystems. Designed as a scalable framework, ESS-DIVE incentivizes data providers to contribute well-structured, high-quality data and enables the user community to easily build data processing, synthesis, and analysis capabilities using those data.
