Join NEON for a webinar on March 24, 2021!
The National Ecological Observatory Network has countless datasets, supporting documents, training resources, pieces of infrastructure, and experts across the United States and Puerto Rico - so where should you get started? Join us for a 1-hour webinar where we will introduce you to the NEON Observatory and provide an overview of our most essential resources to help you get started using NEON data for your own research, learning, and teaching. This webinar will also serve as an advertisement for our upcoming four-day (3hr/day) workshop the week of June 14th (details to follow!).
The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) provides open ecological data from 81 field sites across the United States. NEON data cover a wide range of subject areas within ecology, including organismal observations, biogeochemistry, remote sensing, and micrometeorology. Many datasets already span several years of data collection. In addition to open data, NEON also provides many resources that support land managers, researchers and educators, including sampling protocols, data skills training, and classroom-ready lesson plans. This workshop will provide an introduction to resources for access and working with a variety of NEON data for your research or curriculum, as well as an overview of the NEON Data Portal. Additionally, it will showcase case studies of researchers using NEON data, and connect you to our extended networks of ecology professionals.
