In 1999, pelletized calcium (powdered wollastonite with a lignin sulfonate binder) was applied to watershed 1 of Hubbard Brook LTER using helicopters in order to evaluate the role of calcium supply in regulating the structure and function of base-poor forest and aquatic ecosystems. HBR LTER.

As a group, the 25 sites that comprise the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network are some of the most intensively studied ecosystems in the world.

The study of these ecosystems provides the scientific community, policy makers, and society with the knowledge and predictive understanding necessary to conserve, protect, and manage the nation's critical ecosystems, their biodiversity, and the services they provide.

This section provides those interested in the results of LTER research, particularly media professionals, a single point of entry for gathering information about LTER and a window into the broader Network.

Because LTER is a program of the National Science Foundation (NSF), many of the major LTER findings are reported through NSF news releases and can be found on the Foundation’s website (nsf.gov).
