NEON Infrastructure includes the following “Assignable Assets” that available upon request for PI-driven research and environmental studies:

  • Mobile Deployment Platform (MDP): A self-contained suite of sensors, power systems and data logging capabilities for capturing atmospheric, soil, and aquatic based measurements.

  • Sensor Infrastructure (SI): Includes infrastructure to support physical instrument systems or arrays for collecting environmental data from automated sensor suites

  • Observational Sampling Infrastructure (OSI): Gives researchers access to NEON sampling locations or to biological samples at NEON sites before they are archived

  • Airborne Observation Platform (AOP): A suite of remote sensing instruments mounted into a twin otter airplane for collecting airborne data.

When do you think the MDP (portable flux towers in particular) is likely to be available? What kind of tower heights are possible?


#3

Hey Ankur,

The MDP is available for request now. Tower heights between ~2 m and 30 m are possible.

Hope you are well!
