Abstract

The article focuses on the computational and empirical challenges of using satellite imagery data in modeling grassland conversion. It mentions that the U.S. temperate grasslands continue to face high conversion risk and empirical models to understand how to conserve grasslands are limited. It explains sampling strategies to reduce computational constraints in satellite imagery data.
