In this 1-hour live interactive webinar, NEON scientists Megan Jones and Claire Lunch will lead all participants through the NEON website and NEON data portal to learn about the online resources and how to download NEON data. Then, all participants will learn how to use the neonUtilities R package to format NEON data into a format that is easier to work with and to download data directly into R. The webinar will also allow opportunities for chat-supported questions and will be recorded. The webinar is on February 27, 2020 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. MT.
