LUQInformationManagementBy: Eda C. Melendez ColomLUQ Information ManagerOverviewLTER in a broader contextLUQ: its vision, mission and goalsData organization (LUQ Model)Data useData design (based on the LTER standards) (to archive data)Now is not the time to gut these job-creating investments in science and innovation. Now is the time to reach a level of research and development not seen since the height of the Space Race. And today, no area holds more promise than our investments in American energy.

Obamas 2013 State of the UnionFebruary 12Obama in the State of the Union mentioned:And over the last four years, our emissions of the dangerous carbon pollution that threatens our planet have actually fallen. But for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change. Yes, its true that no single event makes a trend. But the fact is, the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15. Heat waves, droughts, wildfires, and floods all are now more frequent and intense. We can choose to believe that Superstorm Sandy, and the most severe drought in decades, and the worst wildfires some states have ever seen were all just a freak coincidence. Or we can choose to believe in the overwhelming judgment of science and act before its too late. I propose we use some of our oil and gas revenues to fund an Energy Security Trust that will drive new research and technology to shift our cars and trucks off oil for good. If a non-partisan coalition of CEOs and retired generals and admirals can get behind this idea, then so can we.

LUQ Information Management (LUQ IM) vision of the world is a complex web of information (data and metadata). Each set of information describes one or many components of our planet. As each piece is described independently, other pieces are interlaced into the view of many others.

VisionOur mission is to share that information as is generated by the Research of the Luquillo LTER in a timely manner thus helping in the discovery of the relationships among these components.
