The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) project is a 30-year operation funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and managed by Battelle Ecology. The mission of the NEON project is to design, implement, and operate continental scale research infrastructure to open new horizons in ecological science and education, and to enable ecological analyses and forecasts for the benefit of society. The observatory network extends across 20 eco-climatic domains, each representing a different US ecosystem. Within each domain, NEON uses cutting-edge technology to observe and measure varied ecological properties, including plant diversity, above and below-ground biomass, carbon storage, and mosquito and beetle diversity. Coupled with these terrestrial observations, are climate instrum
