Title: FRAMES Metadata Reporting Templates for Ecohydrological Observations, version 1.1

Abstract

FRAMES is a a set of Excel metadata files and package-level descriptive metadata that are designed to facilitate and improve capture of desired metadata for ecohydrological observations. The metadata are bundled with data files into a data package and submitted to a data repository (e.g. the NGEE Tropics Data Repository) via a web form. FRAMES standardizes reporting of diverse ecohydrological and biogeochemical data for synthesis across a range of spatiotemporal scales and incorporates many best data science practices. This version of FRAMES supports observations for primarily automated measurements collected by permanently located sensors, including sap flow (tree water use), leaf surface temperature, soil water content, dendrometry (stem diameter growth increment), and solar radiation. Version 1.1 extend the controlled vocabulary and incorporates functionality to facilitate programmatic use of data and FRAMES metadata (R code available at NGEE Tropics Data Repository).
