USA-NPN Research Coordination Network Meeting - May 2012
This NSF-sponsored Research Coordination Network meeting, May 22-23rd, 2012 in Milwaukee, WI will bring together 40-50 practitioners (by invitation) to identify key strategies for moving the field of phenology forward. In doing so, we aspire to bolster the science and data-oriented goals of the USA-NPN as a mechanism for supporting the long-term relevance and sustainability of the Network and the field of phenology at large.
Contact: Carolyn Enquist
Specific workshop objectives include:
- Identification of a suite of ‘’grand challenges’’ related to phenology research and applications that are relevant to decision-making at the national scale
- Generation of a first-order phenology-linked data products catalogue
- Development of a plan for strategically growing the National Phenology Database to support basic and applied research and the development of data products and decision support systems
