Capstone students are helping us hear the stories of farmers who are adapting to climate change.
Natural Resources Specialist, Justin Mount, is improving producers’ understanding of crop system planning tools, specifically the Integrated Erosion Tool (IET). The IET is a web-served, geospatial, farm field-level crop system analysis tool for estimating wind and water erosion, soil and air quality trends plus energy used per acre.
This assessment evaluates the vulnerability of 11 forest ecosystems in the Mid-Atlantic region (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, eastern Maryland, and southern New York) under a range of future climates.
