Summary

Sagebrush ecosystems in North America have experienced extensive degradation since European settlement, and continue to further degrade from exotic invasive plants, greater fire frequency, intensive grazing practices, increased oil and gas development, climate change, and other factors. Remote sensing is often identified as a key information source to facilitate broad-area ecosystem-wide characterization, monitoring and analysis, however, approaches that characterize sagebrush with sufficient and accurate local detail across large areas to support ecosystem research and analysis are unavailable. We have developed a new remote sensing sagebrush ecosystem characterization approach for the state of Wyoming, U.S.A. This approach uses a [...]

Purpose

The goal of this project is to provide a rigorous large-area sagebrush-habitat classification and inventory with statistically validated products and estimates of precision across the State of Wyoming. This release is the first version of these products, with subsequent product improvement dependant upon future funding.
