Map showing how NEON has divided the country into 20 Domains based on varied ecosystems

National Ecological Observatory Network, Northern Rockies - Domain 12, Environmental Assessment

This Environmental Assessment (EA) assesses the impacts of a proposal to create an ecological research and monitoring site on Blacktail Deer Plateau, within Yellowstone National Park, which would involve the installation of infrastructure, including a tower, soil sampling (array) plots, instrument hut, and aquatic monitoring equipment. Plots would also be established within a defined study area to collect data on biogeochemical cycles, infectious diseases, and a suite of local taxa to characterize patterns, dynamics, and linkages in terrestrial ecosystems. An annual flyover with small aircraft would collect airborne observations. This proposed site would be operational over a 30-year period.
