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

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 6235-11210-007-83
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.
