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.
neonUtilities 2.1.1 is now available on CRAN! This new version fixes a small number of bugs, including the readr 2.0.0 incompatibility described in an earlier notification. Update is highly recommended.
Version 2.0.0 of the readr package was released July 20, 2021. This new version causes stackByTable() to error out in neonUtilities 2.1.0 and earlier. A new version of neonUtilities that resolves this issue will be released as soon as possible.
Following the discovery that wind monitor orientation discrepancies were adversely affecting wind direction data in Wind speed and direction on lakes on-buoy, NEON has field-verified current wind monitor orientations at the buoy sites and updated the algorithm to account for the wind monitor orientation and approximate uncertainty atop the buoy mast.
neonUtilities 2.1.0 is now available on CRAN! This new version adds new options for handling Release data, improves error messaging, and fixes bugs in flux footprints and microbe community composition. Update is highly recommended.
This is an update to the previous post concerning external lab surface water and groundwater nutrient data. Currently, sub-samples for nutrient analysis are being frozen and stored for future analysis with lower MDLs. The newly contracted external laboratory will begin receiving samples June 14, 2021 and all stored samples will be shipped by December 31, 2021. Data will be published approximately 90 days following sample receipt.
Macroinvertebrate metabarcoding (DP1.20126.001) and Zooplankton metabarcoding (DP1.20221.001) bioinformatics data in the tables inv_metabarcodeTaxonomy and zoo_metabarcodeTaxonomy tables are missing or have incorrectly labeled records for COI-F230 for samples collected in 2018 and 2019.
Surface water microbe cell count (DP1.20138.001) laboratory data for all aquatic sites from 9/2017 to 9/2020 were found to have incorrect calculations populating rawMicrobialAbundance data field. Data were recalculated, edited, and published to the data portal on April 5, 2021.

Macroinvertebrate collection (DP1.20120.001) field data in the table inv_fieldData for all aquatic sites from 2014 through 2019 are duplicated on the NEON data portal due to an error on data transition for this table. Corrections have been made, but will not appear on the portal until the 2022 data release.
This is an update to the previous post concerning wind direction data from the buoys. NEON has field-verified current wind monitor orientations at the buoy sites, and is taking multiple corrective measures.
