Palmer Station LTER Dataset Catalogs

Core datasets, including primary and derived measurements from annual cruises as well as other timeseries (long-term weather, sea level, sea surface temperature, etc.), from the Palmer Station LTER are available through the following data catalogs:

EDI Catalog

Officially archived datasets are available on the EDI Data portal, as required by the LTER Network. Datasets are generally updated 6-12 months following each field season. All papers using LTER data should cite these datasets, which are provided in CSV format, along with fully described metadata and DOIs.

R2R Ship Datasets

Data collected by the research vessel during LTER cruises is also available in the Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) catalog.

Under development: Local Erddap Catalog

Core datasets are also available on our local Erddap server. This server allows you to subset and graph data directly. It also provides datasets in a variety of formats, including CSV, NetCDF, Matlab and more.

This tool is under development. Not all datasets are yet complete and up to date.
