PhD, Hydrology, University of Arizona., 2012
The Watershed and Sensor-based Data Specialist (currently A. Neal) will be responsible for maintaining infrastructure and equipment related to long-term sensor measurement systems including power supplies, the cross-CZO campaign at SSHO, data loggers and network communications. The Specialist will maintain sensor data and facilitate its integration into the national CZO database (in conjunction with the Cyberspecialist). Along with these duties, the Specialist will be responsible for maintaining and archiving SSHO geospatial data and producing maps. Neal, who holds a Ph.D. in Hydrology, joined the Penn State team from the AZ CZO. Neal will also work closely with at least one undergrad each field season to facilitate and collect tree measurements to support H7 (diameter, height, distribution), LAI every couple of weeks, and litter fall.
