The NEON Great Lakes User Group (GLUG) is a group of researchers and educators interested in using NEON data and resources to address and advance scientific and technical issues specific to the Great Lakes region.
The overarching objectives of the GLUG are to facilitate regionally focused, nationally relevant collaborative research and to create a mechanism for communication between regional stakeholders and NEON staff within the area. Specifically the user group will:
- Identify and pursue areas of research and appropriate funding opportunities to advance regional-scale scientific progress using NEON resources.
- Use NEON data to develop peer-reviewed scientific publications, presentations, technical reports, and outreach products.
- Liaise with NEON.
- Facilitate regional collaboration and growth of the NEON user community.
The group meets bimonthly online, with more frequent and topically-focused meetings as specific issues and opportunities emerge. The group will meet once per year in-person at a NEON site or regional conference. The GLUG Charter provides more details into the group's organization and approach.
