Abstract
Three indicator categories of arid ecosystem condition (spectral properties; vegetation composition and abundance; and soil properties) were tested during the summer of 1992 in the southeastern Utah portion of the Colorado Plateau. The focus of the 1992 study was the development of three indicator categories with particular regard to (1) estimation of selected components of sampling variance, (2) use of remotely sensed information to selected sample frame materials, and (3) operational aspects of indicator implementation such as field logistics, quality assurance procedures, and information management. The 1992 Colorado Plateau Pilot Study provided a significant first step towards regional and national implementation of EMAP-Arid. Additionally, the study results provide a further mechanism for coordination of indicator development and for evaluation with collaborators from participating agencies and the external scientific community, especially via the peer review process.
