sites established by the National Science Foundation to support research on
long-term change. We are interested in how biophysical setting, climate, and
changing land use interact to shape lake characteristics and dynamics over
time (past, present, future). Our primary study sites include a set of seven
northern Wisconsin and four southern Wisconsin lakes and their surrounding
landscapes. Principal Investigators of NTL-LTER represent 14 departments of
the U.W.-Madison campus plus US Geological Survey and Wisconsin Department
of Natural Resources. The project maintains an extensive state of the art

current and future use. Data collected in this project include real time
streaming sensor data monitoring lake conditions, manual water sample
analyses, microbial genomics data, data from experimental manipulations, and
a wide range of spatial data.
