National Ecological Observatory Network featured at ESA/SER Joint International Conference

iously funded large telescope arrays, particle accelerators, and research vessels. It is designed to gather data for at least 30 years and to serve as a US terrestrial contribution to the proposed Global Earth Observation System of Systems.

NEON will support the first continental-scale comparisons of research transects focused on some of the nation's most pressing ecological challenges, including: the effects of urban and exurban development; forest management; invasive species and infectious diseases; nitrogen deposition; continental-scale climate change; agriculture and biofuels; ecohydrology; and climate change effects through the water cycle (rain or snow, permafrost, runoff).

The focus of NEON complements the theme of the ESA/SER joint meeting, Ecological Restoration in a Changing World. Society depends on ecosystems in the same way it depends on weather, water resources, and agriculture. We currently have little understanding of the effects of these large-scale changes on the ecosystems that supply services and underpin the quality of life of the human community. NEON data will improve ecological forecasting to optimize resource management and provide early warning of biological natural hazards.

In addition to the presentations at the ESA/SER special session, leading NEON scientists will host a Graduate Student and Post Doc Bagels Roundtable on Tuesday, August 7, 2007, from 7:00 am - 8:00 am. Conference attendees may also learn more about the Observatory, including core site locations, by visiting the ESA/SER NEON Exhibit (Booth 602). Candidates interested in applying for the full-time position of NEON Staff Scientist may sign up at the NEON booth for an interview during the conference.
