Provenance Generator

Provenance metadata should be included in a derived data package to document its sources. This can be accomplished by adding a separate <methodStep> element in the derived data package for each of the source data packages from which it is derived.

A data package derived from knb-lter-ntl.325.2 as one of its source data packages should include the <methodStep> element shown below as a sub-element within its <methods> element.
