Franklin will present an update on the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), a national environonmental monitoring effort. NEON's vision is to forecast future states of ecological systems for the advancement of science and the benefit of society. The network monitors a variety of environmental drivers, including biotic, abiotic, and social factors, to enable their forecasts. NEON also involves a comprehensive cyberinfrastructure to integrate measurements and deliver data products to the community -- scientific, educational, and general public. Franklin will outline NEON's variety of observation and data acquisition methods. He will also show how the University of Washington can continue to be an active participant in the NEON program.
