|NEON Chief of Science will speak at NDSU; UND community invited|
Michael Keller, Chief of Science for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) headquartered in Boulder, Colo., will visit North Dakota State University. Keller's presentation will take place Thursday, Oct. 1, 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., in the Arikara Room at the NDSU Memorial Union. It will describe future plans for NEON - an observatory network that will be the first of its kind to collect ecological data at continental scales over multiple decades. NDSU is the host institution for NEON Domain #9, the Northern Plains, and North Dakota will be the site of Domain #9 observatory towers. NEON data will be made readily available to scientists, educators, students, decision makers and the public in order to understand and address large ecological questions and issues.
