The NSF EPSCoR-funded Nevada Climate Change Project seeks to create a central, reusable, extensible infrastructure that can be used to collect geospatial climate data and information. Housing climate data for Nevada and its surrounding regions during the initial construction phases, the newly created system (with its central component: the Nevada Climate(More)

Created with support from an NSF EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) grant completed in 2013, the Nevada Climate Change Portal (NCCP) serves as a cyberinfrastructure hub that provides data and computing resources for scientists studying the effects of climate change in Nevada. In particular, the NCCP has been designed for data acquisition,(More)
Vegetation processes in terrestrial ecosystems are closely linked with wildfire regime, but fire histories at the boundary between the Great Basin and Mojave Deserts of North America are relatively sparse. We investigated wildfire regime and its driving factors before and after Euro-American settlement in high-elevation mixed-conifer ecosystems that are(More)
Climate research projects traditionally handle data collection and management activities in an isolated manner, targeting and satisfying only the needs of project researcher(s). While this model successfully allows researchers to meet their immediate data needs for a given project, it has the unfortunate effect of creating data sets that exist in a variety(More)
