fill in this form to learn more about the ARGON network and how you can participate
ARGON is soliciting collaborators with data relevant to the long-term temporal data collected by NEON (National Ecological Observatory Network). For more information please see http://pearselab.com/argon/

The aims of ARGON are:
1. Build a network of collaborators who share their data to support research into ecosystem structure and function.
2. Provide tools and support so ARGON members can publicly release their data.
3. Release easy-to-use software packages so any researcher can use open-access ARGON-linked data.
4. Support research conducted by ARGON members on ecosystem structure, function, and change.

Please register your interest in the possibility of joining and contributing data to the ARGON network, and participating in the first working group.

Profession
Research and Relevant Data
Please answer these questions to better understand your research and the data you are considering for ARGON.
Your answers do not have to be comprehensive; if you do not know, for example, exactly how many species you have surveyed a ball-park number is still very useful!
Research Themes
Separated by commas, please list keywords to describe your research and the themes of the data you are considering to contribute e.g., plant community ecology, freshwater nutrient cycling, climate change
Your answer
Citations and Data URLs
List URLs or citations for data that has or has not been archived digitally e.g., dryad URL, ecological archive URL, journal website with supplementary tables, etc. Separate multiple entries with commas; if none, please leave blank.
Your answer
Taxonomic Groups
Please list the taxonomic groups of the data (e.g., ground beetles, birds, trees, soil microbes, insects). Separate multiple entries with commas; if none, please leave blank.
Your answer
Environmental Variates
Please list list the environmental data that are available (e.g., temperature, substrate, human impact). Separate multiple entries with commas; if none, please leave blank.
Your answer
Ecosystem Types
Please list the ecosystem types sampled (e.g., mountain tops, lakes, farms). Separate multiple entries with commas; if none, please leave blank.
Your answer
Number of sites measured for each ecosystem type
If the data can be divided into sites and samples, please list the number of sites were data were sampled (e.g., 45 mountain tops, 16 lakes, 2 cities, 7 farms). Separate multiple entries with commas; if none, please leave blank.
Your answer
Data Size
If all of your data were combined into one matrix, about how many cells would it be? For example, 10 bird species and 2 covariates, sampled 3 times at 5 sites, is 12 (10+2) columns and 15 (3x5) rows = 12 x 15 = 180.
Your answer
Temporal Extent
Please list the number of years your sites have been sampled
Your answer
States and Territories
Please list the U.S. States and territories where your data are sampled (e.g., AR, UT, PA, PR). Separate multiple entries with commas; if none, please leave blank.
Your answer
Data Release
May we send you a followup email for any clarifications about your research?
