|NDSU invites UND to hear National Ecological Observatory Network speaker|
"NEON: Enabling Research and Education in Continental Scale Ecology," is set for 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, in the NDSU Memorial Union - Arikara Room. NDSU invites the UND community to attend the talk by Michael Keller, Chief of Science for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) headquartered in Boulder, Colo. Keller's presentation 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.
