AGCI ELEMENTS OF CHANGE REPORT (1997)

Scaling from Site-Specific Oservations to Global Model Grids

Much attention in climate modeling has focused on how to downscale from large scale model output to smaller scales in order to resolve critical features such as mountain ranges. This Elements of Change report looks at the other side of the scale problem. It addresses the problem of known as upcaling, which is scaling from areas measured in square meters to larger aggregates. In this report are d... View arrow

AGCI ELEMENTS OF CHANGE REPORT (1996)

Natural Hazards and Global Change

Societal ability to understand, build resiliency, and respond to natural hazards will be put to the test as global environmental changes, such as climate change, are likely to make natural disasters and hazard more common. This Elements of Change report discusses the main components of natural disaster reduction and illustrates why better disaster management and response is necessary in face of ... View arrow

AGCI ELEMENTS OF CHANGE REPORT (1995)

Changes in Global Vegetative Patterns and Their Relationship to Human Activity

Since the onset of satellites, particularly Landsat in 1972, the ability to map vegetative cover type and changes in its aerial extent has led to a fundamentally new way of understanding the Earth and rates of change to its surface. This Elements of Change report explores the technical aspects of remote sensing and analysis of data along with a variety of ground truthing techniques. Furthermore, i... View arrow
