Ordway-Swisher Biological Station NEON - United States of America

The Ordway-Swisher Biological Station (OSBS) is operated by the University of Florida and comprises over 9,300 acres. It is a year-round field station established for the long-term study and conservation of unique ecosystems through management, research and education. The Station is located approximately 20 miles east of Gainesville in Melrose (Putnam County, Florida). There are two aquatic arrays at Ordway-Swisher, representing the two dominant aquatic features on the landscape: 1) Suggs lake, a shallow surface water lake that is rich in taxa and biologically active in structure and function; and 2) Barco lake, a deep lake connected to ground water.Remote sensing surveys of this field site collect lidar, spectrometer and high-resolution RGB camera data. Theflux/meteorological tower at this site is 116’ with 6 measurement levels.This site has five soil plots placed in an array within the airshed of the flux tower. Total data products planned for this site: 119
