Date: 22–24 May of 2019
Location : Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS
This workshop provides a unique opportunity for leaders in soil moisture research and development to come together in an interactive workshop format to exchange ideas and develop collaborations. This will be the ninth consecutive year for the workshop, which is an initiative of the community of researchers that has developed from the Marena, Oklahoma, In Situ Sensor Testbed (MOISST).

The Konza Prairie Biological Station (KPBS) is located on a 3,487 hectare native tallgrass prairie preserve immersed in the middle of the Flint Hills, a region that encompasses over 1.6 million hectares extending throughout much of eastern Kansas from near the Kansas-Nebraska border south into northeastern Oklahoma containing the largest remaining area of unplowed tallgrass prairie in North America.
We will also visit one of the core stations of the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), which is a major initiative fully funded by the National Science Foundation.
