Researchers may want to work within or adjacent to NEON sites while not using NEON infrastructure or personnel. NEON can facilitate coordination with NEON site hosts and landowners. Review of these projects ensures no impact to NEON data collection and provides limited logistical support for work adjacent to NEON sites.
Research Coordination at Field Sites
Researchers interested to work within or adjacent to NEON sites while not having a project within the NEON Assignable Assets Program should first submit an information request using the Contact Us web submission form.
We may be able to:
- Assist in evaluating the potential impacts of proposed activities on NEON measurements and observations
- Select optimal locations for your research objectives ensuring efficient use of resources and high-quality data
- Facilitate site host communications, coordination, and location of field sampling on site
- Help you find additional information about field sites, permitting or other topics
The following worksheet provides information about which field sites are open to additional non-NEON research activities. Researchers will need to obtain required access and use permits from the site host, but NEON can help facilitate this contact.
