Nine-Mile Prairie PhenoCam

CALMIT Data & Resources: CALMIT PhenoCam at Nine-Mile Prairie

CALMIT Research Associate Bryan Leavitt conducting maintenance on the CALMIT PhenoCam.

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.
