Dr. Helmus traveled to Utah State University in Logan to attend a preliminary meeting to develop the ARGON network. ARGON is short for: Augmenting Research Grounded on NEON. All ecological datasets, including NEON, benefit from having more history and coverage. ARGON (Augmenting Research Grounded On NEON) will augment NEON by bringing together datasets collected anywhere nearby current or potential NEON sites.
You can listen to an interview with the head of ARGON here.
