News and Press Releases

Welcome!

The Swiss Earth Observatory Network (SEON) is a competence centre to monitor status and functioning of Swiss ecosystems in a changing environment. An increasing demand for natural resources impacts important biotic and physical processes within the Earth system and causes complex interactions within terrestrial ecosystems. SEON pursues a holistic Earth system science approach to assess environmental change impacts on ecosystem functioning and considers complex feedback mechanisms between the Earth spheres, including the human impact.
