Central Arizona-Phoenix LTER
United States of America
Our work focuses on a metropolitan area that includes the nation’s sixth largest city, Phoenix, as well as 22 other municipalities and spans Maricopa County and a small portion of Pinal County, Arizona. We engage biological, physical, engineering, and social scientists in research that provides a foundation for understanding urban socio-ecological systems in an arid, but rapidly growing, metropolitan area.
