Data Availability Name Objective Description Dates
DownloadableCoarse Woody Debris dataTo quantify the nature of dead and down material on plots in the LEMP network in order to monitor carbon sequestration and the storage and cycling of nutrients and water.Field data collected on coarse woody debris (CWD). CWD includes downed, dead tree and shrub boles, large limbs, and other woody pieces that are severed from their original source of growth and are on
the ground. Wood pieces must be >3.0 inches in diameter at the point of intersection with the transect.

By requestLong-Term Ecosystem Monitoring Project DatabaseOrganize the LEMP datasets that make up the LEMP datbase. LEMP is a 50-year monitoring effort that examines the broad-scale environmental changes -- particularly changes in climate, air quality, soil
health, and vegetation.

This dataset contains the LEMP database created by the FEMC. This database contains data on coarse woody debris, descriptive plot and subplot information, specific visit information for plot vegetatio
n sampling, vegetation data for each quadrat, saplings, seedlings, and trees. Plots are located throughout the Green Mountain National Forest of Vermont and the Finger Lakes region of New York.

DownloadableMicroplot Sapling DataTo compare species distributions between the under and over story in order to predict future forest composition/structure.Field data collected on sapling measurements, species abundances, health metrics, and damage indicators. A sapling is classified as any tree with a diameter at breast height between 1 and 5 inches wit
hin the microplot.
