Working Group

Soil Sensor TWG

The Soil Sensor Technical Working Group (TWG), will provide feedback on all aspects of sensor measurements made in the TIS soil plots, including soil temperature, soil moisture and salinity, soil CO2 concentration, soil heat flux, throughfall, soil surface photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), net longwave radiation, and soil surface/litter/vegetation infrared temperature measurements. In addition, the Soil Sensor TWG will provide recommendations on approving or disapproving requests for large amounts of soil from the NEON Megapit Soil Archive.

If you have questions or comments for this working group, please contact Ed Ayres.
