posted on 2023-11-30, 08:40 authored by Patrick Clark

A Year-round stationary camera from a fixed position overlooking sagebrush rangeland dominated by Wyoming Big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata ssp. Wyomingensis). Color and infrared images are taken every 30 minutes between 10 am and 2 pm Mountain Standard Time. The camera points north and incorporates a view of the Nancy Gulch watershed weir house and meteorology station. The camera is part of the instrumentation suite for the LTAR "common experiment" comparing agricultural and environmental results from "business as usual" and "aspirational best practices."
