SUMMARIZING ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE LTER NETWORK OFFICE DURING THE FIFTH YEAR OF COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT DEB–9634135 – The LTER Network Office played key roles in four major activities during 2001-2002. The Network Office continued its leadership role in the effort to refresh the intellectual aims of LTER and to prioritize activities over the next 10 years. Staff from the Network Office took the lead in providing information requested by the panel conducting the 20 Year Review of the LTER program and contributed to the written network response to nine issues raised by the panel. The Network Office organized an informational meeting at NSF in February 2002 to provide current information on LTER accomplishments for NSF programs. NET provided support to produce research syntheses and publications for 17 working groups that were formed as a result of interactions at the 2000 All Scientists Meeting.
