NEON ambassador’s program

…Had it’s kickoff Ideas Lab meeting today, the link is here. I’m a part of this effort as a mentor and I must say I’m really impressed with the group of diverse scientists that have been selected for the program after a very serious competition.

What’s always fun about these types of meetings is the unexpected–today I learned about some modeling simulations going on at NCAR that I hadn’t heard about: if I heard correctly, the involve the in silico simulation of actual NEON sensor towers from specific domain sites of the Observatory. The idea is that the simulation can be tested against the actual data product time series across the ~200 data products. Neat!
