Working Group

Foliar Sampling TWG

The central goals of this group are as follows:

  1. Provide expert technical input regarding priorities for NEON’s Canopy Foliage Sampling protocol
  2. Evaluate accessibility, quality, and usability of NEON’s Plant Foliar Physical and Chemical Properties data product, and how it relates to other NEON plant and airborne data products. Provide advice on priority areas for improvement.
  3. Ensure plant physio-chemical data is collected in a way that meets community-accepted standards and can be used to extend and scale remote sensing data across NEON sites
