Get a glimpse of 760 eLTER sites in our new DEIMS-SDR video

5 October 2022

DEIMS-SDR is one of the most comprehensive publicly available catalogues of long-term ecosystem research and monitoring sites in the world. It was created to reduce fragmentation and to increase the findability, interoperability, and accessibility of in-situ sites and data.

Today, DEIMS-SDR contains detailed site information of about 760 eLTER sites in Europe as well as sites outside of Europe. It offers information on long-term research sites and access to data sets.

In order to promote DEIMS-SDR, eLTERs’ WP11 produced a video together with the e-shape project’s myEcosystem showcase (see NL from 06/2020). It aims to provide a comprehensible summary of the purpose and functions that DEIMS-SDR offers to various stakeholders.

The video highlights why DEIMS-SDR is essential for long-term ecosystem, critical zone and socio-ecological research, shows how sites and associated essential metadata link to findability, accessibility and interoperability of contained sites and outlines the benefits for stakeholders.
