In 2010, HawkWatch International and U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground provided funding to the Remote Sensing/GIS Laboratory to map cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) across 4.3 million hectares of western Utah. The primary objective of the study was to develop spatial models that depicted low, medium, and high presence of cheatgrass cover. Additionally, a logistic spatial model was developed to identify potential occurrence of cheatgrass across the study area. The results of the study were used to identify areas of concern in regard to raptor nesting. In 2012, U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground and Argonne National Laboratory extended this research project by providing additional funding to produce maps of cheatgrass cover for Dugway Proving Ground environmental and fire management plans. A total of 105 maps depicting cheatgrass potential, probability of cheatgrass occurrence, and LANDFIRE Vegetation Departure were generated for U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground and for the Federal Aviation Administration airspace sectors within and adjacent to the military boundary.
