As climates shift and change, ecosystems respond in different ways. Assessing the ecological impacts of a changing climate is crucial for natural resource management decision-making. NASA Earth observations can be used to help make these decisions. This five day, in-person training will focus on conducting scenario planning, species distribution modeling, and state-and-transition simulation modeling. The training is being held in partnership with USGS.
By the end of the training, attendees will be able to:
This is a five day, in-person training.
This course is intended for spatial analysts with strong technical GIS skills who work with land managers to evaluate how a better understanding of climate patterns can inform management actions.
