NEON Goals
The overarching goal of NEON is to enable
understanding and forecasting of climate change,
land use change, and invasive species on
continental-scale ecology by providing
infrastructure to support research in these areas.
• Information infrastructure: Consistent, continental, longterm, multi-scaled data-sets and data products that serve as a
context for research and education.
• Physical Infrastructure: A research platform for investigatorinitiated sensors, observations, and experiments providing
physical infrastructure, cyberinfrastructure, human resources,
and expertise, and program management and coordination.

NEON-NADP Synergy: Opportunities!!
• Wet Deposition/NTN
– NEON is looking to add ~55 additional wet
deposition collection sites for 30 years of
operations
• Data Sharing
– All data collected by NEON is publicly available
via the NEON data portal (duplicate of the NADP
hosted data)
• Network Collaboration
– All NEON algorithms, model synthesis,
continental scale data maps, etc. will be
available

NEON Sampling Instrumentation
Instrumentation:
• Manufacture: N-CON Systems
Company, Inc.
• Model: Trace Metal (TM) sampler
• Features: dual bottles and chiller to
accommodate wet deposition
sampling and precipitation isotopic
sampling. TM model is modified
from MDN 00-125-4 Automatic
Precipitation Sampler for Mercury
& General Purpose Sampling.

NEON-NADP Comparison Strategy
• First Co-located Sites (Summer 2014):
– Central Plains Experimental Range/Pawnee
grassland
– Woodworth
• Data Comparison:
– (Re)-evaluation based on results from initial sites
– Further comparison at CASTNET at Rocky
Mountain NP, Oak ridge, Niwot ridge, Caribou
Creek, etc.
• MOU to be discussed at Exec Meeting (Thursday)
• Analysis and Archiving will adopt the NADP
methods
– Available to the community through NEON and
NADP

Additional Measurements: Tower 1
Additional measurements at NEON sites can
be helpful to interpret the results of wet
deposition:
• Climatic observations: winds (horizontal),
temperature, humidity, PAR radiation
profiles.
• Precipitation: bulk precipitation (both liquid
and solid), US CRN DFIR at core sites

Additional Measurements: Tower 2
• Canopy
Aerodynamics
• Wind
(turbulent)
• Gas Chemistry
(O3, NOy, CO2,
H2O, isotopes)
• Aerosols
• Particulate
Matter (PM1,
PM2.5, PM10,
TSP) Filter
