Southeast Ecological Observatory (SEEON)
SEEON extends across a vast area encompassed by the coasts and mountains of the Southeast, and includes the Coastal Plain, Peidmont, Southern Appalachian, and Ozark ecoregions. In the future, the area between the Southern Appalachians and Ozarks likely will emerge as a distinct regional observatory.

Established in late 2003, SEEON has held two thematic workshops focused on the research, infrastructure, and management needs of a Southeast observatory. The First SEEON Workshop was convened by the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL) and the Institute of Ecology of the University of Georgia, and was held 16-19 October 2003 at the SREL Conference Center in Aiken, SC. Participants identified the strengths of the Southeast for studying ecological and environmental issues confronting the region and nation, and discussed how best to pursue interdisciplinary research to address these complex issues. The Second SEEON Workshop was convened by the University of Florida and NASA, and was held 26-29 February 2004 at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, FL. This workshop focused on the development of novel sensors and instruments, networking of sensor arrays, advanced data management and interpretation, and other information technology issues related to the establishment of an ecological network. Proceedings from workshops are available for download from the SEEON website.
