Researchers began installing sensors in a variety of ecosystems several decades ago to study how carbon dioxide, energy, and water vapor cycles through the environment. Today, these sensors are deployed at 120 locations across the Americas. Recognizing that the data gathered at these sites could benefit a variety of scientific communities, DOE is funding an effort to make these data accessible to a wide range of researchers. ESD’s Climate and Carbon Sciences Program co-lead Margaret Torn, working closely with Computational Research’s Deb Agarwal, will be spearheading this project.
