Habitat loss and degradation due to urban expansion and other human activities have raised concerns for the Western Gulf Coast Mottled Duck population. This species relies on tidal, palustrine, and agricultural wetlands as well as grasslands for all of its life cycle needs. The disappearance of suitable nesting and brood-rearing habitat is believed to be the primary factor associated with long-term population decline of the mottled duck. One of the first science projects initiated by the GCP LCC was development of a spatially-explicit Decision Support Tool (DST) to help guide conservation and management of habitat for breeding Mottled Ducks in coastal Louisiana and Texas. An important next step is evaluating the...

The Landsat Burned Area Product Validation dataset was collected to determine the accuracy of The Landsat Burned Area Essential Climate Variable (BAECV) product, developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The BAECV maps burned areas across the conterminous United States (CONUS) for the entire Landsat archive (1984 – 2015). Rigorous validation of such products is critical for their proper usage and interpretation. The sampling design used to derive this validation dataset was adapted from the methods used by European Space Agency’s (ESA) Climate Change Initiative (CCI) fire_cci project to generate the first statistically rigorous global reference dataset for a burned area product that meets the CEOS LPVS stage...
