     Using NASA Resources to Inform Climate and Land Use Adaptation

    Contact: Andrew J. Hansen

    with Scott Goetz, Forrest Melton, Bill Monahan, Ramakrishna Nemani, Tom Olliff, David Theobald and John Gross

    Funding: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)


    Designation of US Department of Interior Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) emphasizes the important

    threat that climate and land use change pose to biological resources in national parks and on other federal lands.

    Developing strategies for management and adaptation in the coming century requires improvements in our ability to

    forecast biological responses under future scenarios, assess spatial variation in the vulnerabilities of biological

    resources, and design multi-scale management strategies based on vulnerability and management feasibility.
