Workshop

Changes in Global Vegetative Patterns & Their Relationships to Human Activity

calendar
Jul 9th, 1995 - Jul 22nd, 1995
location
Aspen

This workshop focused on human-driven changes to the planet’s land surface and the implication of these changes for net primary productivity. It explored what alterations have already (or are) taking place and investigated broader implications of these changes for ecosystem functioning, biogeochemical cycles, and climatic stability. Consideration was given to various mapping landmarks for vegetative cover type and the need for more grid based data and the role for remote sensing and GIS.

Keywords: land use change; ecosystems, land cover
