Project Description

eLTER H2020 is a major project that will help advance the development of European Long-Term Ecosystem Research infrastructures.

LTER Ria de Aveiro is one of the Virtual Access (VA) sites in the H2020 project eLTER)

The overall aim of the eLTER H2020 project is to advance the European network of Long-Term Ecosystem Research sites and socio-ecological research platforms to provide highest quality services for multiple use of a distributed research infrastructure.

To achieve this, the LTER-Europe network and the European Critical Zone Observatories (CZO) community will collaborate in eLTER H2020. During the project, 162 sites in 22 countries will provide data on long-term trends in environmental change. Test cases using these data will address a range of environmental and social issues to push innovation in network level services and steer conceptual developments.
