The Land-Cover/Land-Use Change (LCLUC) program is developing interdisciplinary approaches combining aspects of physical, social, and economic sciences, with a high level of societal relevance, using remote sensing tools, methods, and data. One of its stated goals is to develop the capability for periodic satellite-based inventories of land cover and monitoring and characterizing land-cover and land-use change. The program focuses on analysis at global to regional scales, taking advantage of the synoptic capability afforded by satellite remote sensing and with the understanding that land-use change occurs locally.
The current solicitation consists of two elements: LCLUC in Southeast Asia and LCLUC in the Caucasus.
Deadline: Step 1 due December 1, 2016. Step 2 proposal due June 1, 2017.
