Project Resources:

  • Explanation for Project Components & Participants Expectations
  • PAL-LTER (Palmer Long Term Ecological Research) Background Information
  • The PAL-LTER sampling grid area is 260,000 km2
    • California is 423,970 km2, so the PAL-LTER sampling grid area is equivalent to ~42% of all of California
    • Colorado is 269,837 km2, so the PAL-LTER sampling grid area is equivalent to ~67% of all of Utah
    • Missouri is 180,540 km2, making it virtually the same size as the PAL-LTER sampling grid area
    • New Jersey is 22,591 km2, so New Jersey could fit inside the PAL-LTER sampling grid area ~8 times
    • Ohio is 116,098 km2, so the Ohio could fit inside the PAL-LTER sampling grid area 1.6 times
    • Utah is 219,890 km2, so the PAL-LTER sampling grid area is equivalent to ~82% of all of Utah
