  3. Research Questions/Tópicos de Investigación • Is population growth (urban and rural) predictable? If so, what are the effects on ecosystems? • How does one quantify ecosystem services, e.g. biodiversity, endangered species, wildlife habitat, water quality/quantity, carbon sinks, soil fertility? • Further investigate the linkages between air quality and human health.

  4. Binational Data • Land use/land cover • Elevation • Remotely sensed imagery • Natural protected areas • Soils • Drainage network • Land ownership • Climate/weather • Road network • Geology • Sociodemographics

  5. Scales • Regional (1:250k, 1:100k) • Local (1:50k, 1:24k) • Urban (1:10k-1:5k)

  6. What progress (failures?) • Tijuana River watershed • Paso del Norte • USGS Border Environmental Health Initiative • San Pedro River • Priorities, Communication, Standards
