Surface In-Situ Networks
The goal of the Luquillo Long-Term Ecological Research Program is to understand how changing climate and land use are affecting the environment of northeastern Puerto Rico. Luquillo LTER includes both terrestrial and aquatic studies, from the peaks of the Luquillo Mountains to the city of San Juan, encompassing strong gradients of both climate and land use. Luquillo LTER research applies to other islands in the Caribbean and similar tropical areas, and it is part of global networks of long-term environmental research in the United States and other countries and tropical forest sites.
