NRC Survey on Land Change Modeling

Dear Land Change Modeler*:

The U.S. National Academy of Sciences, through its National Research Council (NRC), is assessing the future research requirements for spatially explicit land-change models and needs your input (committee details below).

We kindly ask that you complete a short, five question, on-line questionnaire: This is a small survey, going only to a select group of individuals, so your response will be valuable to the committee. Please complete the questionnaire by May 1 if possible.
