CCE LTER Data System

CCE LTER core data, including primary and derived measurements from both Process and CalCOFI-augmented cruises as well as other timeseries (long-term weather, sea level, sea surface temperature, etc.) are available through Datazoo, CCE LTER's primary data catalog

CCE LTER Core Areas

Disturbances often shape ecosystems by periodically reorganizing them, causing significant changes in plant and animal populations and communities. For this plot, Sustained high values indicate El Niño conditions; sustained low values indicate La Niña conditions

Nitrogen, phosphorus, trace metals and other mineral nutrients are cycled through the ecosystem by way of decay and disturbances. In excessive quantities nitrogen and other nutrients can have far-reaching and harmful effects on the environment.

The entire ecosystem relies on the recycling of organic matter (and the nutrients it contains), including dead plants, animals, and other organisms. Decomposition of organic matter and its movement through the ecosystem is an important component of the food web.

A population is a group of organisms of the same species. Variations in abundance of populations of organisms can be important indicators of environmental changes.

Plant growth in most ecosystems forms the base or "primary" component of the food web. The amount and type of plant growth in an ecosystem helps to determine the amount and kind of animals (or "secondary" production) that can survive there.
