Research Project: Technologies and Their Transfer for Monitoring, Assessment As Management of Mongolian and U.S. Rangelands

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 3050-11210-007-83
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2014

Objective:
The objective of this cooperative research project is to develop technologies and technology transfer activities for integrative assessment and monitoring of arid and semi-arid rangelands in Asia and North America.

Approach:
Collaborative experiments will be designed and implemented at jointly identified sites in the Southwestern United States and Mongolian rangelands. Experiments will be patterned after existing experiments to: (1) design assessment and monitoring technologies that integrate ground-based and remotely sensed indicators of ecosystem properties; and (2) design methods to described ecological sites in a global manner applicable to both U.S. and Mongolian rangelands. Technology transfer activities will be conducted on both continents through both field and classroom training programs.
