New and Revised Datasets
If you haven't visited the Hubbard Brook Data Catalog lately (, please take a minute to do so. The data package listing has been reconfigured to take you directly to the Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) data repository. You will still browse, filter and search on the Hubbard Brook website, but when you locate a data package of interest, a link will take you directly to the EDI landing page for that dataset. There you will find a number of useful features, including full metadata, a location map, dataset citation (including DOI), code to programmatically access data (in your choice of R, tidyr, Matlab, SPSS and SAS), and pointers to earlier or newer versions of the data package.
There are many datasets in the queue that will be coming online in March. If you have Hubbard Brook data that have not made their way into the system, please contact to start the process.
Here are a few recently added or updated data packages:

The deadline for proposals for new research at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest is coming up on March 15. Instructions and an online proposal form are here: Please note, this is the last chance to submit proposals for work that will begin this field season. If you have any questions, contact Scott Bailey:
NSF will soon be doing two reviews pertinent to the Hubbard Brook LTER: a 40-year review of the entire LTER program, and a mid-term review of the Hubbard Brook LTER grant. We are required to provide information on personnel and leveraged funding for both of these reviews.
1) To help with the personnel information, please fill out this online form. This form also asks for information on education and outreach activities related to HubbardBrook. Please fill this out whether or not you are receiving funding from the LTER grant. This should only take a few minutes.
2) If you have been the lead PI on one or more grants of over $25,000 for Hubbard Brookresearch since 2008, please also fill out the spreadsheet emailed by Gary Lovett on February 25. Any grant that includes work at Hubbard Brook or using Hubbard Brook data is appropriate. This will help us calculate how much funding is being leveraged by the LTER for research, education, and outreach at the site. Please fill out and submit the online form and the return the completed spreadsheet to Gary Lovett ( by Thursday, March 7, 2019.
Thank you for reading!
