Maps and Locals (MALS) LTER ASM09 Workgroup - Part 4

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is
We propose a four-hour product oriented working group to make progress on the research agenda concerning Maps and Locals (MALS) that we proposed in our recent application for a LTER supplement grant. The goal of MALS is for each participating LTER site to compile land use maps for three points in time for its site, and then to characterize the changes over time both quantitative and qualitatively. The four hours is organized into a pair of two-hour sessions. Gil Pontius will lead the first...
