Research Project: CEAP-Grazing Lands Modeling

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 3050-11210-009-24-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 25, 2018
End Date: Dec 31, 2019

Objective:
Direction for linking conservation effects assessments to CEAP model runs and grouped ecological site data; wind erosion tool for NRCS use; completion of ecosystem service benefits derived from conservation practice application on all land uses in selected LRRs, and; development of new protocols and uses for NRI data in assessment.

Approach:
1. Populate grouped ecological site information into the ARS EDIT database. 2. Perform reviews of APEX1605 input data and output reports. 3. Conduct data summaries of NRI Grazing Land Onsite data as needed by CEAP-GL. B. Value-Added Benefits of Conservation on Grazing Lands in the Central Great Plains. 1. Work with CEAP-GL, ARS-Las Cruces, Earth Economics, and Texas A&M, to actively participate in group meetings and provide review of the methods/processes and incremental and final reports on ecosystem services for the Southern Great Plains project area.
