The Southern Sierra CZO has hundreds of sensors deployed in the field - collecting multitudes of data that are processed and presented here. Continuing previous work, the suite of core and investigator-specific data produced by the Southern Sierra CZO (SSCZO) will be expanded and refined. Data management is coordinated with the National CZO network, and through collaboration with the Pacific Southwest Research Station (PSW) and others. As part of the SSCZO commitment to integrated, participatory research, data will be made available to CZO participants, collaborators and the broader community in a timely manner.
In addition to the updates to the data archives, we frequently add new information to datasets here. An interactive map for data is under construction. We are also refining data levels to better reflect the depth and breadth of data in the CZO network.
We are working with other CZOs to develop cross-CZO capabilities for sharing, integrating, analyzing, and preserving CZO data.
