Abstract:
Leveraging existing cyberinfrastructure, land cover data, and geospatial analysis capacity developed during previous phases of National Science Foundation (NSF) EPSCoR funded research, the Kansas Biological Survey (KBS), together with a team of research partners from across the University of Kansas, K-State University, is examining the influence of the biofuel industry in the economy, environment and society . Ultimately this research seeks a greater understanding of the collective impact of these complex interactions on the earth’s climate. The extensible design of the cyber-infrastructure is allowing KBS researchers to integrate new levels of functionality, data visualization, data sharing, and project collaboration to this and other research.
