Boulder-based NEON, funded by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle, is building 81 field sites (47 terrestrial and 34 aquatic) across the United States, utilizing cutting-edge technology that will gather and synthesize continental-scale data over 30 years on the impacts of climate change, land use change and invasive species on natural resources and biodiversity. Such information will enable users to understand and predict environmental change on regional and continental scales. As a continental observatory, NEON will support a large and diverse group of organizations and individuals. All NEON data and information products are freely and openly available to scientists, educators, students, decision makers and the public.
