Monitoring Change: SIPI Students Engage in Long-Term Ecological Research

Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v24 n3 Feb 2013
American Indian tribes across the nation are facing pressing ecological challenges related to alterations in species distribution, access and availability of water, shifting community structures, and other phenomena correlated to climate change. At the Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute (SIPI, Albuquerque, NM), faculty and staff believe the key to responding to local tribal impacts is to develop local technical expertise; access the most current and relevant data sources across multiple spatial, temporal, and spectral scales; and engage in research that monitors local and regional ecological phenomenon to provide accurate data for decision makers. SIPI offers a series of seven short courses, student internships, and certification workshops in geospatial technologies as part of its Summer Institute program. These workshops emphasize ecological and environmental science applications specific to meeting tribal science and natural resource needs.
