Ecosystem Services, Soil, GIS, R, Model development and implementation
Roles and projects at CEH
Work on the GMEP project has involved using the GIS based model “LUCI”, to simulate ecosystem services condition, and identify where interventions to improve condition may benefit or adversely impact other services. This work has included python scripting for code development, and use of numerous spatial datasets to run and validate the model for Wales.
Additional work has included analysis of Countryside Survey data in R, using generalised additive models to assess anthropogenic and natural drivers of changes in soil properties.
