Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, North and West Alaska CESU: The USGS is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research in enhancing scientific understanding of how climate trends and variability are linked to phenology across spatial scales, with the ultimate goal of being able to understand and predict climate impacts on natural resources. A key step towards achieving this long-term goal is connecting local observations (individual plants or animals) of phenology with those at regional to continental scales (10 km to 10,000 km), which may ultimately be used to better understand phenology across ecosystems and landscapes and thereby inform natural resource management. The specific shorter-term goals of this effort are to process and distribute phenology camera (or ⿿phenocam⿝) products, and to develop a plan for how these products can help meet longer-term goals. These data products would be delivered to the research and user communities in standardized formats, and would be promoted through the USA-National Phenology Network (NPN) and North Central Climate Science Center (NC CSC) websites to support a variety of research and resource management applications.
