This NCAR-NEON Workshop, the second in the three part series, will focus on the integration of ecological models and observations. The workshop will include a series of plenary talks on ecological modeling, as well as an interactive exploration of a new resource to easily run CLM simulations at NEON tower sites, and breakout discussions focused on catalyzing new avenues of discovery in at the interface of ecology, modeling, and atmospheric science.
The most recent workshop installment was held virtually, Tuesday September 14, at 10 AM MDT. View the recording:
The workshop will consist of a series of talks, a one hour working session, and focus on broad synergies between ecology and the atmospheric sciences. We have identified three broad questions of relevance to the workshop which will guide discussions and feed into a manuscript.
- What ecology can bring to atmospheric sciences and what atmospheric sciences bring to ecology?
- What tools have been developed to better understand these interactions?
- How does NEON advance the science? What are the NEON products that could be best used to bridge the gap between ecology and atmospheric sciences? What is NEON missing that would be helpful in meeting these goals?
As these will be working meetings, we request that those attending commit to investing 2-3 hours to prepare for each meeting (tasks will include reading and providing some feedback - details to follow in coming weeks) as well as contributing actively during the workshop. In addition to preparing for and participating in the virtual workshops, all interested attendees will have the option (but are not required) to contribute to manuscript generation, as we anticipate each of the three workshop installments (September, November, ~April) leading to a publication.
This will be followed by a longer more intensive in-person workshop in Spring 2022.
