How do I register for an account, so I can enter data?
Creating an account must be done by your direct supervisor. Please contact them to fulfill this request.

Need to report a bug?
If you are experiencing an issue with the website, you may share it with the programming team to have it resolved. Please visit us here, register for an account, and post the request by clicking "Create Issue" in the "Issue Tracker."

What's the difference between a source and a site?
A "Source" is the institution, school, or other organization that is collecting data and coordinating the work being conducted. Sites, on the other hand, are locations or places where data is collected. Sites have a specific set of parameters (things like name, latitude, longitude, and elevation) which uniquely identify them from other Sites even when they are close to one another.

Why can't I get a specific Method to delete?
In order to delete an existing Method from the system, you must delete all data values associated with it in the database. Once you have deleted the data values, the Method can be deleted.

How do I know if my data was entered successfully?
When data (or any other parameters) is submitted, the page will always display a success action message. The system is also built to notify you of missing or empty fields before the form may be submitted to the database.

Can I delete values if I realize I entered something incorrectly?
If you enter a value that is incorrect or needs to be changed, please contact your direct supervisor immediately. They have the authority needed to edit or delete the data from the table.

How do I add a new method?
Only an Administrator has the authority to add new methods to the system. Please contact them with the necessary information to fulfill this request. They will associate the new method with the appropriate Types (or Variables) in the database.

Where can I find additional information about the database?
The database used for this software is modeled closely after those suggested by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences (CUAHSI). For additional information about the database structure, please refer to the Advanced Database Documentation provided by them.

Still have questions?
If you do not see your question or answer you're seeking, please contact your direct supervisor about these additional questions.
