CALMIT Data & Resources: CALMIT PhenoCam at Nine-Mile Prairie
PhenoCam is an ecosystem phenology camera network with sites spanning the globe. The PhenoCam Network provides automated, continuous, near-surface remote sensing of vegetation canopy phenology. The imagery allows us to view vegetation phenology, such as bud break and senescence, in real time and identify trends.
CALMIT maintains a solar and wind powered PhenoCam site at Nine-Mile Prairie. Nine-Mile Prairie is a 230-acre (97-hectare) relict tallgrass prairie that is a research and educational resource for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The Nine-Mile Prairie PhenoCam was established in 2015 and is a collaborative project supported by AmericaView, the Department of Interior North Central Climate Science Center, and the Center for Advanced Land Management Information Technologies (CALMIT) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
