All News From the VMC
The Environmental Monitoring and Management Alliance (EMMA) in is a regional network of land managers and researchers committed to developing standardized methodologies for environmentally relevant research and data collection in the Hudson Valley of New York. Bringing together 10 organizations, they have built up an initial data archive of climate and deer exclosure data, and made it available through the Vermont Monitoring Cooperative’s archive. Included are six datasets on deer exclosures, one of which has been in operation since 1992, and eight weather monitoring projects at different sites. Find out more about this great effort and the data they are bringing together at http://www.uvm.edu/vmc/emma.
The VMC has published proceedings from the Annual Conference held on December 2, 2016. The proceedings include the abstracts of the contributed talks, a synthesis write-up from our morning panel and reports from the working sessions in the afternoon.

The VMC is thrilled to announce that its management portal is now available to the Cooperative. Built on the latest standards in ecological data documentation and research data sharing, this portal gives users complete control over their data. Host large datasets, make them discoverable and, if you want, downloadable through the VMC website. This is a great way to safely archive your data and make it available to those seeking to monitor and understand our forested ecosystems.
If you're interested in access and training, please contact Jim Duncan to get started.
