Summary

The dataset contains a time series (2000-2013) of cheatgrass percent cover maps covering the western and central areas of the northern Great Basin. The original time series (2000 to 2010) has been extended to include years 2011, 2012, and 2013. The additional maps were built by applying satellite data from their respective years to model parameters developed from the 2000 to 2010 model

Purpose

The time series of cheatgrass percent cover maps was developed for two primary reasons: To better understand cheatgrass percent cover dynamics in the northern Great Basin and to develop a dataset that can be used as proxy for annual actual cheatgrass production thereby serving as the dependent variable in the cheatgrass dieoff model.
