JER-Desertification

PI: John Daues
Institution: USDA-ARS-JER
Abstract:
This research project is part of the Jornada Basin Long Term Ecological Research program based at New Mexico State University. The Jornada has been studying the causes and consequences of desertification since 1982. In this specific project, we are simulating the establishment of perennial grasses prior to woody plant invasion using historical weather data from 1900 and vegetation data from 1858. We are also simulating establishment under current climate and vegetation. Our third objective is to simulate establishment following directional changes in climate. To do these simulations, we need climate projections from RCMs.
