The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is a program that provides open-acess, continential-scale data from across the U.S. to better understand how ecological processes are changing. NEON, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, will provide 30 years of data from 81 terrestrial and aquatic field sites, with five field sites, including the KU Field Station, in Kansas. These data cover a range of subject areas within ecology, including organismal observations, biogeochemistry, hyperspectral imagery, and micrometeorology. All samples and data collected by NEON are publicly available and can be accessed digitally through the NEON website. Rachel Karpiesiuk, senior field ecologist for NEON's Domain 06 (the Prairie Peninsula), will provide an introduction to NEON, demonstrate some of its protocols, and discuss resources available for accessing and working with NEON data.

Science Sundays is a monthly series of in-person public talks at the KU Field Station. These Sunday afternoon talks cover a variety of science topics, including research happening at the Field Station. Talks are free and open to the public—anyone who wants to learn more about science—but may not interest younger audiences.

Registration will be capped at 40 each month; please RSVP by emailing Wendy Holman (wendyholman@ku.edu), KU Field Station education program coordinator. Snacks provided.

The KU Field Station is managed by the Kansas Biological Survey & Center for Ecological Research.
