With this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Division of Biological Infrastructure (DBI) and Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) within the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) announce an intent to support Research Coordination Networks (RCNs, NSF 17-594) to coordinate new and existing groups of scientists conducting research enabled by the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON).
Proposals for the NSF-funded Macrosystems Biology and NEON-Enabled Science are due February 25, 2019. The Macrosystems Biology and NEON-Enabled Science (MSB-NES): Research on Biological Systems at Regional to Continental Scales program will support quantitative, interdisciplinary, systems-oriented research on biosphere processes and their complex interactions with climate, land use, and invasive species at regional to continental scales as well as training activities to enable groups to conduct Macrosystems Biology and NEON-Enabled Science research.
THE ASPRS 2019 Annual Conference and International Lidar Mapping Forum will again take place with the ASPRS Annual Conference, providing a space to access strategic contacts, cutting-edge hardware and software, and expert education in the geospatial technology market.
Learn to work with repeat-photography images to study landscape changes. This workshop is a joint effort between the PhenoCam network and the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) to share recently developed tools facilitating access to, and analysis of, camera imagery and higher-order data products available through PhenoCam.
We will explore these NEON Surface Atmosphere Exchange resources and solicit input to guide development of NEON SAE community resources for 2019. Additionally, the workshop offers hands-on tutorials utilizing eddy4R vignettes in a cloud-computing environment.
The goal of the workshop is to synthesize a set of goals and objectives for the next phase of the national effort to deploy the data held in our natural history collections for research and education, and to suggest strategies for meeting these goals and achieving these objectives including technological advances, new community standards and potential partnerships.
NEON will share and discuss recent activities and findings from research and outreach efforts, and strategically plan future projects and partnerships at the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory 2018 Annual Meeting.
The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Biological Sciences invites media and members of the public to a distinguished lecture series with Michael Dietze of Boston University. He will present a framework to understand the predictability of ecological processes and highlight ongoing efforts to build an ecological forecasting community of practice.
Attending the West Big Data Innovation Hub Open Annual All Hands Meeting 2018? Stop by the 3:30pm - Poster Session & Lightening Talks to learn more about a NEON collaboration called EDSI: Attending the West Big Data Innovation Hub Open Annual All Hands Meeting 2018? Stop by the 3:30pm - Poster Session & Lightening Talks to learn more about a NEON collaboration called EDSIN: Introducing the Environmental Data Science Inclusion Network
This workshop will focus on decadal synthesis, combined with the integration of flux measurements with other data sources (remote sensing, inventories, tree rings, phenology, etc.). We will also explore priorities for future eddy-covariance research, and outline a general synthesis of advances over the past decade.
Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry
The Goldschmidt Conferences™ were started in 1988 by the international Geochemical Society (GS) to provide a forum for its members to discuss their latest research. NEON scientist,Samantha Weintraub will be presenting at the conference.
As NEON enters full operations, we are excited to see that the observatory will be featured in over two dozen sessions at this year's ESA annual meeting. We are also providing a number of opportunities for attendees to get to know more about this ambitious and first-of-its-kind ecological observatory.
The Sixth Interagency Conference on Research in the Watersheds (ICRW) will explore research and adaptive management that aims to highlight the challenges of sustaining working watersheds and their components that are involved in economic production such as agriculture, urban development, forestry, mining/energy extraction, and outdoor recreational activities, while balancing issues that arise from these complex ecosystems and landscapes.
This course will focus on how to efficiently utilize NEON AOP data for scientific applications and how common remote sensing processing methods will impact data quality. Applications for the 2018 Remote Sensing with Reproducible Workflows Data Institute are due 20 March 2017.
In this workshop session, we will explore open educational resources that use NEON data, as well as use the NEON data portal to directly access NEON data of interest with a discussion of considerations for using the NEON portal and data with students.
Wicked Problems: Investigating real world problems in the biology classroom (SW 2018) is an opportunity to meet like-minded faculty, share ideas and resources, learn about effective pedagogical approaches, and catch up some cutting edge science. Participants will include Megan A. Jones, a Battelle Researcher and Science Educator for the NEON project.
