Currently at SevLTER we are developing GIS capability in terms of providing modern SDE geodatabase driven processing and access for site spatial data and metadata. Perhaps more importantly, we are leveraging remote sensing GIS data to answer questions about ecosystem processes.
SWEETS Project Description:
Advances in science often begin with the development and use of new technologies
and instrumentation. The integration of current 'off-the-shelf' technologies
including microcomputers, microsensors, low-power radio chips, and the Internet
allow the development of a new class of instrumentation that can scale across
space and time, introducing a new paradigm to how we instrument, and even
think about, the environment.
IGERT graduate students Lydia Zeglin and Mary Harner to receive NSF awards which will greatly enhance their dissertation research.
UNM Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences graduate students Carolyn Dumrose and Debbie Bryans currently conducting extensive soils pit investigations in the McKenzie Flats region of the Sevilleta.
One day event maintains regional scope and great turnout.
Determining how interactions of nighttime warming, winter precipitation and N deposition affect shrub establishment and the abundance of dominant grasses in grassland ecosystems.
Located on the UNM Field Station Allotment at SNWR, the new, state-of the-art UNM Sevilleta Education and Research Facility (SERF) is an incomparable laboratory facility built with federal and state funding.
