FAQs and Implementation Plan Now Available!
What is TEON?
The Terrestrial Environmental Observation Network (TEON) is intended to meet the need for a sustainable environmental observing network for northern Alaska. TEON is organized around representative focal watersheds. TEON will collect, distribute, and synthesize long-term observational data needed to detect and forecast effects of a changing climate, hydrology, and permafrost regime on wildlife, habitat, and infrastructure in northern Alaska.     Click here to learn more.
