Home > News & Updates > NSF Award to Expand Monitoring of Black Rock Forest

May 24, 2004. The National Science Foundation has awarded the Black Rock Forest Consortium (BRFC) a grant to modernize and expand the ecosystem monitoring network at the Black Rock Forest Field Station. Extending earlier work by BRFC and CCNMTL, this three-year grant includes a subaward for CCNMTL to develop web applications that access real-time ecosystem data for use by scientists, educators, and students. These applications will give educators and their students authentic content for studying regional biology, geology, and environmental science and will expand the research capabilities of Columbia scientists. William Schuster, executive director of the BRFC and Frank Moretti, executive director at CCNMTL, are co-principal investigators for the grant.
