Read about our new NASA Ecological Forecasting project! We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with Drs. David Bunn, Jody Vogeler, and Melissa McHale (Colorado State University), Dr. Neil Carter (University of Michigan) and both students and colleagues in South Africa.
“Colorado State University Geography Professor David Bunn and his research group have won a $750,000 award from NASA to develop an “ecological forecasting” system for South Africa’s Kruger National Park and the surrounding region. The proposal will enable scientists to better study and support conservation in and around Kruger, applying species distribution data collected from the field as well as land-use and land- cover change data from NASA earth observation satellites.”
