We're a National Science Foundation funded research project studying high-elevation mountain ecosystems.
Funded by the National Science Foundation and managed out of the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado, Boulder, the Niwot Ridge LTER (NWT) program is an interdisciplinary research program with the long-term goals of understanding high-elevation mountain ecosystems and contributing to broad conceptual advances in ecology. NWT also provides education, outreach, and knowledge to inform alpine resource management and conservation. Our program is built on a foundation of more than 35 years of research that includes decades-long experiments and monitoring.
