81 freshwater and terrestrial field sites, across 20 ecoclimatic Domains. Explore them all.
Quantifying ecological processes over time and across the U.S. requires a complex sampling design. NEON's 47 terrestrial and 34 freshwater aquatic sites support studies that characterize ecological change and link individual local measurements to site-level and continental-scale questions about ecological change. From habitats spanning deserts to tropical forests and from tiny streams to lakes, each site has unique characteristics.
