Remote sensing integration. Continue to develop and test remote sensing acquisition and interpretation technologies. Sampling design. Optimize statistical design to address both local and national requirements for precision. Coordinate and integrate model parameter and ground-based measurements so that ground based measurements can be used to (a) generate statistics at both national and (where sufficient replication exists) local scales, (b) calibrate photo-interpretation, and (c) provide input data for models. Finally we will integrate NRI with research and model results using ecological site descriptions to support future Conservation Effects Assessments at national and local scales and support changes in field technology used to sample NRI on-site field locations.
