Access the LTER Network Data Portal

Data are one of the most valuable products of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network. Data and metadata derived from publicly funded research in the U.S. LTER Network are made available online with as few restrictions as possible, on a non-discriminatory basis. In return, the LTER Network expects data users to act ethically by contacting the investigator prior to the use of data for publication.

The LTER Network Information System Data Portal contains ecological data packages contributed by past and present LTER sites. Please review the LTER Data Policy before downloading any data product. We request that you cite data sources in your published and unpublished works whenever possible. Digital object identifiers (DOI) are provided for each dataset to facilitate citation.
