We are ever changing our data management to provide everyone with the data they need. You can now download data from years past, by year. And data from this year- as it becomes available! We are working on a way to notify you every time there is a new iteration of this year's data (as Sarah will post data as she gets it from the lab)- we are not quite there yet, for in the interim I will email you every time there's new data. The data are in .xls files.
When you download you will get a file that looks like:
We also need to provide Sarah the data she needs to properly characterize the sites where all of the samples are coming from. That is one of the roles with new Field Sampling form plays. So please do not forget to:
- Download the form
- Fill it out in the field
- Add the Latitude and Longitude (from Google earth if you have not used a GPS unit in the field)
- Upload your field data to this site.
These field forms will also help your classes with information about their sites, and the data can be shared from school to school. The observations from the field will be MERGED with Sarah's data so that, in the future, your students AND Sarah will also get information about the sampling sites!
Please email Hannah with questions and suggestions.
