Professor Scott Ollinger of UNH's Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) and the department of natural resources and the environment will serve as the first director of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON).

NEON is a continental-scale observation system for examining critical ecological issues. Currently under construction, the $433-million project is designed to gather and synthesize data on the impacts of climate change, land use change, and invasive species on natural resources and biodiversity.

NEON will build and link together 60 sites in 20 regional "eco-climatic domains" across the country.
