The Great Basin ecoregion in the western United States represents one of the last large expanses of wild lands in the nation. However, due to drought# invasive species encroachment, and climatic variation, it is currently facing significant ecological changes. Of particular concern is the spread of the invasive species# Bromus tectorum, or cheatgrass, which has the ability to displace ecologically crucial native plants such as sagebrush. Sagebrush dominated shrubsteppe is home to the Greater Sage-Grouse which is under consideration for federal protection. Additionally# extreme precipitation coupled with increases in frequency, duration, and magnitude of fire events may lead to significant increases of cheatgrass that will trigger ecological and economic impacts in the region over time. This project provided a set of geospatial analysis tools and methods for researchers and land managers to quantify and mitigate these changes in the northern Great Basin ecoregion. The northern section of the Great Basin which accounts for 30% of the ecoregion, was analyzed using Landsat 7 and 8 imagery, modeled geospatial data, and spatial statistics. This project created a set of time series maps and multivariate graphs correlating annual percent change in cheatgrass and burn severity. Time series correlations also included historical precipitation, temperature, and soil water storage provided by the Basin Characterization Model (BCM). These results provide a low-cost solution to assess landscape conditions, and provide partners with a repeatable methodology for monitoring cheatgrass response to fire under different climate scenarios for more focused conservation efforts.
