The Ecological Society of America’s SEEDS (Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability) program, in partnership with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), invites graduate students from underrepresented experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds to attend an interactive workshop from October 26-30, 2020 to develop key ecological data science skills and to discover ways to use NEON data.
NEON Domain 17 field staff will be holding an Explore NEON workshop October 24th-25th. This 2-Day workshop will introduce participants to NEON as an organization and provide background on Domain 17 and the NEON sampling design. Participants will interact with Domain 17 field staff and members of the NEON Science team while learning how to view, download, and analyze NEON data using the popular coding environment R.
This workshop introduces participants to NEON, teaches them how to access and work with NEON data, and allows them to interact with NEON science staff to get assistance working on the specific data products 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. This event is hosted by the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, and is open to all.
The Entomological Society of America will be holding its annual meeting virtually from November 11th to 25th. The submission deadline for presenters to submit their papers, posters, infographics has been extended to September, 08.
In this workshop we will provide an introduction to discovering, accessing and preparing a variety of NEON data for your research, primarily using R. We will also explore a variety of educational resources designed to help familiarize you with NEON data, including but not limited to Tutorials, Teaching Modules, and Science Videos.
In this workshop we will explore the breadth of NEON educational resources through the lens of remote learning, including our Tutorials, Teaching Modules, and Science Videos. We will also do some live hand-on programming in R to access and explore NEON data. The goals for this workshop are to increase your awareness of NEON resources (documents and staff!), understand the workflow for working with NEON data in R, and to highlight how each of these can fit into an online curriculum.
Register for up to four webinars presenting four new flexible learning projects that you could use in your teaching this fall. All four projects focus on teaching students through hands-on, coordinated data collection across multiple sites paired with NEON's continental scale datasets.
This workshop focuses on NEON biodiversity data collected from the over 80 NEON field sites. Instruction will include an overview of the breadth of NEON biodiversity data before providing code-along instruction on how to get NEON biodiversity data into standardized formats (long and wide species tables with relevant metadata to make cross data product comparisons possible).
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.
This workshop, taught by faculty who use NEON and other data in their classrooms and by NEON educators, is designed to provide faculty with information and resources to bring real-world, ecological data into their classroom. NEON offers a variety of open ecological data from over 80 field sites across the United States with data applicable to a wide range of ecological subject areas, including microbes, organismal observations, biogeochemistry, remote sensing and micrometeorology.
We're excited to join you at this year's Ecological Society of America (ESA) Annual Meeting that will be held entirely online. There will be over 30 NEON-related events at ESA 2020. Due to this year’s virtual format many of the events will consist of a recorded presentation that can be accessed anytime during the meeting and a 30-minute virtual live Q&A session with a NEON scientist.
The BIOME (Biology and Mathematics Educators) Institute is hosting a virtual “Summer Launch” that will provide a community of peers with the opportunity to share ideas and resources, brainstorm about plans, and initiate collaborations with the ultimate goal of improving student outcomes by piloting new Undergraduate Research Experiences (URE) or enhancing existing UREs.
Instruction will include an overview of the breadth of available NEON AIS data and data product naming conventions, before jumping using the neonUtilities R package to access NEON AIS data. Participants will then learn how to interpret NEON data by referencing metadata records and standardized quality flags. In the final portion of the workshop, participants will be able to explore the individual AIS data products of interest to their research while NEON staff are on hand to address specific questions.
This workshop introduces participants to NEON, teaches them how to access and work with NEON data, and allows them to interact with NEON science staff to get assistance working on the specific data products 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. This workshop will also feature one or more presentations by scientists who work with NEON data within their area of expertise.
NEON will be hosting a 3-hour virtual workshop on accessing and using NEON biodiversity data for the 2020 Society for Freshwater Science (SFS) Summer of Science. Instruction will include an overview of the breadth of NEON biodiversity data before providing code-along with instruction on how to retrieve and convert NEON biodiversity data to standardized formats.
The ASLO-SFS Joint Meeting is cancelled, and consequently this program and all in-person NEON-related activities associated with ASLO-SFS are cancelled. However, NEON is teaching two workshops through the SFS Summer of Science and all NEON Early Career Scholars participants received an email inviting them to register for these workshops.
NEON will be holding a virtual workshop on exploring new dimensions of forest ecosystems with structural diversity in collaboration with PI Songlin Fei and co-PIs BS Hardiman and EA LaRue of Purdue University.
The National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored Ecological Forecasting Initiative Research Coordination Network (EFI-RCN) project, in partnership with the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), are hosting a virtual workshop focused on ecological forecasting using NEON data from May 12-13, 2020.
The NSF sponsored joint NCAR/NEON workshop, Predicting life in the Earth system – linking the geosciences and ecology, is an opportunity to bring together members of the atmospheric science and ecological communities to advance the capability of Earth system prediction to include terrestrial ecosystems and biological resources. The workshop’s overarching theme will focus on convergent research between the geosciences and ecology for ecological forecasting and prediction at subseasonal to seasonal, seasonal to decadal, and centennial timescales, including use of observations, required data...
NCAR and NEON will be hosting a joint, NSF-funded workshop: Predicting life in the Earth system – linking the geosciences and ecology. The workshop’s overarching theme will focus on convergent research between the geosciences and ecology for ecological forecasting and prediction at subseasonal to seasonal, seasonal.
With the transition of AAG 2020 to a virtual meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Access and Work with Open, Continental-Scale Data from NEON workshop will also be virtual. Participants will get an introduction to accessing and using NEON data in this workshop.
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) announces its Spring 2020 Request for Proposals for collaborative team-based research projects that synthesize existing data, methods, theories, and tools to address a pressing socio-environmental problem. The request includes a research topic focused on NEON-enabled Socio-Environmental Synthesis. Proposals are due March 30, 2020 at 5 p.m. ET.
This webinar will cover how to integrate NEON data into undergraduate classrooms, through Macrosystems EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration; MacrosystemsEDDIE.org) teaching modules, other NEON teaching modules, and through independent use of NEON data.
