The Shale Hills critical zone laboratory in Pennsylvania was one of three critical zones funded by the U.S
National Science Foundation. The goal of these areas was to study the complex processes occurring
on the Earth's surface, including research into hydrology, geomorphology and biogeochemical systems.
Acknowledging that this is a multi-discipline problem the funding promoted interdisciplinary research
within these areas. To allow sharing of this data between researchers a standardised approach of storage
the data is required. The volume of data and need for automation means that the data must also be
accessible through machine to machine interactions.
