UNIVERSITY OF PUERTO RICO-RIO PIEDRAS, LUQUILLO LTER
This three-day workshop introduces participants to NEON, teaches them how to access and work with NEON data, and to allow them to interact with NEON science staff to get assistance working on the data they are interested in using. The workshop includes hands-on, interactive instruction on how to access and work with NEON data, both through the NEON data portal and programmatically. The third day is an optional site visit to the NEON Guanica field site. Participation & Registration Workshop space is limited and the workshop hosts welcome applications from anyone with interest in using and...
NEON provides open ecological data from 81 sites across the United States, covering a wide range of subject areas, including organismal observations, biogeochemistry, and remote sensing. Surface-atmosphere exchange data are collected at all 47 terrestrial NEON sites, enabling analysis and synthesis both within and across sites. This workshop will provide an introduction to data access via the Data Portal and the API, and to working with NEON flux data using the neonUtilities R package. Workshop Schedule For location and updates, please refer to the Early Career Workshop Agenda. Time Topic Noon...
This workshop will provide an introduction to discovering, accessing and preparing a variety of NEON data for your research, primarily using R. The workshop will be divided into two sections of roughly equal length.
Participants will leave this session with the tools and comfort level to discover and access data from the NEON data portal and to be aware of and able to use the open educational resources available from NEON.
Applications for the TERENO-NEON carbon and critical zone workshop are due June 10, 2019. The worksop is aimed primarily at early career scientists interested in emerging issues and methods wishing to broaden their knowledge or to identify new research opportunities.
COVID-19 Update: Given the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, the organizing committee of the structural diversity workshop has decided to go to a shorter virtual meeting format on May 18th and 19th from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST and to postpone the in-person site meeting for a future date. Please cancel all travel arrangements you have made for May 19-20th in Boulder, CO but reserve May 18th and 19th for the virtual workshop. For those of you who received travel awards please try to get a refund, but if you are not able to do so contact email@example.com to get additional directions as new...
The NCWIT Summit sets the stage for NCWIT member representatives, notable field experts, and renowned guests to present and learn about leading-edge practices, to network and form partnerships, and to provide encouragement and inspiration for one another.
Tour Time: 3pm - 5pm MTA free CO-LABS network tour of the National Ecological Observatory Network headquarters and labs in Boulder, CO.The National Ecological Observatory Network, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle, is designed to collect and provide open data that characterize and quantify complex, rapidly changing ecological processes across the United States. NEON collects and processes data that characterize plant, animals, soil, nutrients, freshwater and atmosphere from field sites across the U.S. (including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico). Data and...
NEON will be at the NSF INCLUDES Conference: Bringing Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion in Data Science to the Environmental Sciences, which is a 3-day conference with the ultimate goal of developing a networked improvement community (i.e., Environmental Data Sciences Inclusion Network) that works to ensure inclusion across environmental data science professions.
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.
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).
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.
