The Boulder-based National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is funded by the National Science Foundation and operated by Battelle. The NEON project is made up of 81 field sites (47 terrestrial and 34 aquatic), located in ecosystems across the United States; utilizing automated instruments, observational field sampling and airborne remote sensing methods to gather and synthesize continental-scale data over 30 years to measure how our ecosystems are changing. Such information will enable users to understand and predict environmental change on regional and continental scales. As a continental observatory, NEON will support a large and diverse group of organizations and individuals. All NEON data and information products are freely and openly available to scientists, educators, students, decision makers and the public.
