CCVA: Updated Protocol (and a psychedelic Gorge!)

Since May 2014 when Dave started his CCVA project, he's taken crash courses on topics ranging from ecological structure (i.e. how landscapes form and change) to data management to imagery interpretation, just to name a few. All this learnin' has led him to a new protocol that he is confident will lead to a successful Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment by May 2016.

CCVA: Protocol

Here’s what Dave has been up to:

  1. Gathering existing information on land cover types in the Gorge
  2. On-the-ground plot placement within the Gorge
  3. Surveying the plots to quantify what species are present
  4. Grouping those species and environmental data into natural community types
