Biomass production and processing on the Plains would partially restore a perennial vegetative cover and create employment opportunities. Backscatter and LAI time series data for three ∼10 3 km 2 regions in the western Great Plains were strongly correlated (r 2 ∼ –), and variability in mid‐growing season values was well‐correlated with annual precipitation (October through September).

The results indicate that SeaWinds backscatter is sensitive to interannual Cited by:   Soil biological quality can affect key soil functions that support food production and environmental quality.

The Great Plains Synfuels Plant (GPSP) in Beulah, North Dakota has been in operation producing synthetic natural gas (SNG) from lignite coal for 25 years and remains the only coal-to-SNG facility in the United States.

In addition to the production of SNG, the plant also produces high purity carbon dioxide (CO2), which is distributed through a pipeline to end users in Canada for enhanced oil. The North American Great Plains tallgrass prairie was once a system of native cool and warm season grasses, which have been degraded by non-native invasive plants.

Native grass restoration is highly desirable to improve ecosystem functions and productivity. In this two-year study, the impact of fire, herbicide, and nitrogen on productivity and the presence of invasive species [primarily the Author: Sharon A.
