Characterizing biological structure and ecological function of Kansas playas. Central Plains Center for BioAssessment, Kansas Applied Remote Sensing

We will apply information and methodologies acquired in our initial playa project to a different large playa complex located in northwestern Kansas where there are some distinct physiographic differences. Within this new study area, we will apply our developed methodologies to locate and map potential playas and their catchments using recently acquired LiDAR elevation data not available at the time of our initial study.
