A collaboratory to sense and model ecological change in the Kansas River Basin
This project addressed one of the grand challenges of the 21st century—evaluating, modeling and forecasting the biological and ecological consequences of accelerating global changes. These global change phenomena are critical for grasslands, an ecosystem of worldwide importance that provides resources and services to human societies worldwide, and an area of particular significance to the Kansas and regional economy.
