NEON: Revolutionizing Ecological Research

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON)--which is currently under construction and is partially operational--will be a nationwide, multidisciplinary infrastructure for collecting standardized ecological data throughout the U.S. It will be the first observatory to listen to the pulse of a continental ecosystem for multiple decades.

Resulting ecological data, which will be made publicly available, will enable scientists to quickly produce snapshots of the state of the environment across the U.S., and generate the first apples-to-apples comparisons of ecosystem health throughout the U.S. over multiple decades.

In this webcast, NEON is discussed by 1) Elizabeth Blood, the NSF program director for NEON; 2) Dave Tazik, NEON's director of biology; and 3) Tom Kampe, NEON's assistant director for remote sensing.
