This dataset is part of the common observation in the centralized repository for public access, also known as the Common Observatory Repository (CORe), of the USDA ARS Long-Term Agro-ecosystem Research (LTAR) network. This is part of the National Program 216 (NP#216): Agricultural System and Competitiveness and Sustainability. Also The National Wind Erosion Research Network was established in 2014 as a collaborative effort led by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Long Term Agro-Ecosystem Research (LTAR) network and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The research domain incorporates the diverse soils and vegetation communities in the rangelands and croplands of the western United States, with sites located in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, California, Colorado, North Dakota, Utah, Idaho and Washington. We have a tower that collects data for the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network. Our site is part of the NEON project with a tower that is designed to collect and provide open data that characterize and quantify complex, rapidly changing ecological processes across the US. We have a National Center for Environmental Information (NOAA) tower that collects daily summaries of weather data. A Natural Resource Conservation (NRCS) National Water and Climate tower that collects snow and water data.
