    Aquatic Environments

    At Battelle, we understand how fragile the marine and coastal environment is. We can help safe guard these environments and solve your most complex marine and coastal challenges.

Ecosystem Monitoring

Climate resilience is complex—requiring a broad perspective that spans climatology, natural ecosystems, social and economic systems and infrastructure. Battelle teams collaborate across disciplines to apply a “climate lens” to understand risks, vulnerabilities and impacts across sectors, and devise and monitor solutions for government and private clients.

National Ecological Observatory Network

Battelle has proudly managed the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) program for the National Science Foundation (NSF) since 2016.

NEON is the largest ecological observatory network in the U.S., with 81 field sites spanning the country from Puerto Rico to Alaska to Hawaii. The program collects ecological data for 30 years from terrestrial and aquatic field sites in 20 North American ecoclimate domains, creating an open access data trove for the ecology community of unprecedented scope and scale.

The NEON program provides:

  • Free, long-term, continental-scale environmental data through the NEON Data Portal
  • Access to biological, genomic and geological samples collected at NEON sites through the NEON  Biorepository 
  • Infrastructure to support additional research activities (available through the NEON Assignable Assets program)
  • Open access educational tools to help researchers and students work with large sets of ecological data 

Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment Expertise 

We guide our clients through risk assessment development to final remediation goals.
