A fall 1990 meeting of the four LMER sites to address issues of interite coordination has been proposed to NSF. Michael Kemp, principal investigator (P1) of the PROTEUS LMER, has developed a preliminary schedule for a workshop to consider formalizing and quantifying a comparative, intersite perspective among LMER sites, possibly in conjunction with or based on the model of the LTER Network.

The idea for the workshop grew out of discussions between the four LMER Pis at the LTER Coordinating Committee meeting at San Juan, Puerto Rico, in May 1990. This was their first opportunity to meet and discuss common interests and concerns, and to observe the operations of a large research network.
