129 The National Ecological Observatory Network: A Continental-Scale Approach for Studying Soil Biology, Biogeochemistry, and Ecohydrology: I

Oral Session
SSSA Division: Forest, Range & Wildland Soils
This session will provide an update on the construction now underway to build the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), as well as details of the soil-related data that NEON will collect and make freely available over the next 30 years. In addition, examples of how early-adopters are making use of existing NEON data will be presented, along with examples from other large-scale soil projects similar in scope to studies that NEON hopes to facilitate.
