Interested in ensuring that the National Ecological Observatory Network is a valuable resource for your research? Consider joining the Breeding Landbird Technical Working Group (TWG) and help shape NEON science and data. Advisory groups work on topics ranging from data standards to specific collection methods. The overarching objective of TWGs is to ensure that the design and operation of the observatory is based upon sound scientific rationale and good engineering practice. TWG members also help make certain that NEON infrastructure, data and programs are a valuable community resource. To do this most effectively, we are seeking TWG nominees that represent a diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and career stages.
As NEON field site construction concludes over the coming months and we transition to an operations-focused program, we will rely on the expertise of our TWGs even more than ever. If you are interested in helping us solve important science and technical questions related to operating and maintaining NEON observatory subsystems, nominate yourself or someone else today (http://www.neonscience.org/twg-nomination-form.
To learn more about NEON TWGs and how to join, please visit our website: http://www.neonscience.org/observatory/advisory-groups/about-our-technical-working-groups. We are currently accepting nominations through Nov 5, and will notify all nominees of whether they have been selected by Nov 30, 2017. For groups that are needed for longer than a year, nominations will be requested annually thereafter.
