Develop geoscience technology to assess the effectiveness of conservation practices that enhance ecosystem services at multiple scales.
a) Develop Geographic information system (GIS) databases to document land cover/land use and other key aspects of agricultural watersheds to allow simulations with watershed models. b) Investigate remote sensing methods for characterization of riparian vegetative buffers, wetlands, and conservation practices for assessment with the AnnAGNPS watershed model in reducing pollutant loads.
