Measurement depths (zOffset in the sensor positions file) are currently reported incorrectly in the Soil water content and salinity data product (DP1.00094.001) at all terrestrial sites; however, the moisture and salinity measurements themselves are not impacted by this issue.
AOP data that were erroneously not included in RELEASE-2022 are now available in that release as well as searchable with LATEST AND PROVISIONAL release tag. For these data products, RELEASE-2022 supersedes RELEASE-2021. Read on to learn more.
This is an update regarding incorrect sensorDepth values at BARC and CRAM for some time ranges in provisional and RELEASE-2022 data for Temperature at specific depth in surface water (DP1.20264.001). The previous post contains information on how to fix the issue in downloaded data.
Delay in external lab particulate carbon and nitrogen data: Affects the Periphyton, seston, and phytoplankton chemical properties, Stable isotopes in surface water, and Chemical properties of surface water data products.
NEON recently discovered that the Relative humidity above water on-buoy (DP1.20271.001) data product had been over-flagged with the automated step test. NEON has adjusted the step test threshold and re-processed the data product for all time and all sites where it is produced.
Following the data notification published on November 17, 2020, NEON suspended production of the Canopy Nitrogen, Canopy Xanthophyll, Canopy Lignin and Total biomass data products, and removed already published data products from the NEON data portal.
NEON is committed to improving the quality of data we provide to the user community. After receiving feedback from users, and in consultation with the Aquatic Technical Working Group, we are moving forward with changes to the Water quality (DP1.20288.001) data product.
The first set of tick-borne rodent pathogen data from the 5 pilot sites tested in 2020 are now available on the portal. Beginning in 2021, observatory-wide rodent pathogen testing will be for tick-borne pathogens, and data will be available through the rodent pathogen status, tick-borne data product. Prior to 2020, all of the rodent pathogen tests are for hantavirus and are available in the rodent pathogen status, hantavirus data product.
Cheat sheets provide a quick reference for functions, naming conventions, data formats, and other rules for using a code package. For new users of the package, we still recommend starting with the tutorials, but experienced users who need to check their function calls or look up details can get information quickly from the cheat sheet.
An interim solution is starting to be implemented at all terrestrial sites that is expected to increase soil water content (DP1.00094.001) data availability, but may result in a step change in the soil moisture time series until all data are reprocessed through a new data processing system.
