Research Project: Grazing Lands Ceap

Location: Pasture Systems & Watershed Management Research

Project Number: 1902-21000-008-09
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jun 01, 2012
End Date: May 30, 2015

Objective:
Compile national data on soils, topography and climate in support of regional and national Grazing Lands CEAP objectives, specifically development of site type classification and simulation modeling efforts.

Approach:
These funds will be used to hire a GS-05 temporary technician to obtain and process soils, topography and climate data from UGSG and other sources in support of the research needs of Grazing Lands CEAP. The GIS database developed will be used by scientists at University Park, PA; Mandan, ND; El Reno, OK; and Tifton, GA for development of site type classifications and simulation modeling of conservation practices in pastures at the farm and watershed scales. This work supports the Grazing Lands CEAP pasture objectives for 2012 by facilitating modeling efforts using RHEM and other models.
