The Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network is the largest and longest-lived ecological network in the United States. Designed to provide long-term data from a broad range of key ecosystems, the LTER Network represents a unique national resource to address pressing environmental issues such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, and changes in patterns of.

New research has revealed significant changes to Alaska’s landscape in recent decades. During the past 32 years, about 13 percent of the state -- 67, square miles or an area larger than the state of Wisconsin -- has changed, according to a new USGS-led study in collaboration with researchers from academia (e.g.

University of Minnesota) and other federal. Abstract. The Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network is the largest and longest-lived ecological network in the United States. Designed to provide long-term data from a broad range of key ecosystems, the LTER Network represents a unique national resource to address pressing environmental issues such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, and Author: Robert B.

The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) has responsibilities to observe, document, and understand global change and to predict it to the extent possible.

The USGCRP does this by concentrating on five science areas: seasonal-to-interannual variability, decadal-to-centennial variability. establishes a program to regulate the discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States, including wetlands.

Activities in waters of the United States regulated under this program include fill for development. In some of the pilot studies, wetlands lost to development were not regulated at.

The Laysan teal (Anas laysanensis) has the most restricted range of any duck species and is especially vulnerable to extinction because of its small population size and vulnerability to climate species was believed to be endemic to one island until new sub-fossil evidence and ancient DNA-testing revealed Laysan teal were widespread across the Hawaiian archipelago.

Recognizing the value of a long-term perspective on how ecosystems change over time, GLERL has invested in researching the southern basin of Lake Michigan since the s. GLERL's focus on Lake Michigan has led to the establishment of the Long-Term Research (LTR) program.

Table 1 summarizes the components of this water cycle pilot study and the respective participants. The following section provides a description of the surface observation and modeling sites.

This is followed by a section on model analyses, and then the summary and concluding remarks.}, doi = {/BAMS}, journal = {Bull. Meteorol. This chapter contains an evaluation of the design of the NAWQA program components, including integration of the surface water and ground water study units, how study units were selected, the general exclusion of lakes and estuaries from the study plan, the sampling design program, data collection methods, the choice of chemical and biological.

About NSF's Long Term Ecological Research Program. To address ecological questions that cannot be resolved with short-term observations or experiments, NSF established the Long Term Ecological Research Program (LTER) in This research is located at specific sites chosen to represent major ecosystem types or natural biomes.

The Baltimore Ecosystem Study Long-Term Ecological Research project seeks to understand a major urban region as an ecological system.

The project focuses on a five county metropolitan region in which watersheds can be used as the stage on which to understand the reciprocal interactions of the social, biophysical, and built environments. Articles The US Long Term Ecological Research Program JOHN E.

SEASTEDT The 24 projects of the National Science Foundation's Long Term Ecological Research Network, whose sites range from the poles to the Tropics, fromCited by: Quadrat sampling. In this method, quadrats or rectangular frames are randomly placed on the study site.

Scientists identify and count the number of plants within that randomly selected plot. The total number of counted plants is then plugged into a mathematical formula to determine the plant population of the entire study site.

US ocean observation critical to understanding climate change, but lacks long-term national planning The ocean plays a critical role in climate and weather, serving as a massive reservoir of heat.

Over the last fifteen years, Payments for Environmental Services (PES) schemes have become very popular environmental policy instruments, but the academic literature has begun to question their additionality. The literature attempts to estimate the causal effect of these programs by applying impact evaluation (IE) techniques.

However, PES programs are complex instruments. Request PDF | FOCUS: A pilot study for national-scale critical loads development in the United States | The development and use of critical loads of air pollutant deposition in the U.S.
