Remote Data Collection for Adaptive Rangeland Management on Public Lands

This study will examine long-term response of rangelands to landscape management treatments (i.e., juniper removal methods) and extreme disturbances (i.e., wildfire) by 1) linking field measurements of rangeland health to both drone collected data and high resolution satellite imagery; 2) developing on-line decision-support tools to streamline data interpretation; and 3) implementing the support tool across a chronosequence of case studies to examine landscape responses to juniper removal treatments and wildfire.
