Bring researchers into your classroom and give students a window into the process of scientific inquiry. Join us for an informal chat with researchers using data from the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) to examine carbon storage and cycling in ecosystems within Colorado, Maryland, and Virginia. Find out who they are, how they got interested in ecological carbon research, and the research questions they are asking. NEON is a long-term, continental-scale, ecological observation facility funded by NSF and operated by Battelle that offers a variety of open ecological data that powers the most important science being done today. Instructor’s guide available.
