The Interactive Roaring Fork Observation Network (iRON) is an Aspen Global Change Institute (AGCI) project to collect and share data on climate and environmental conditions in the Roaring Fork Valley. The iRON features live and archived data from AGCI’s growing network of soil moisture sensors, supported by Pitkin County, City of Aspen, the John Denver Aspenglow Fund at Aspen Community Foundation and the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. The site also includes links to other environmental data and a blog on weather and soil observations in the valley. iRON was featured on an Aspen Public Radio piece highlighting ecosystem monitoring efforts on protected lands in Aspen, CO.
