Landscape Change Detection with National Inventory and Monitoring Networks in support of Landscape Dynamics Monitoring- GLKN: BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES This Cooperative Agreement (P17AC00585) is entered into by the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service (NPS) and Robert Kennedy (Oregon State University). The objectives of this Agreement are to further development of change detection research using an existing methodology developed at Oregon State University by Robert Kennedy termed LandTrendr. The two networks both utilize this approach as part of their respective long-term monitoring programs and rely on its development as technology changes. In addition to LandTrendr, OSU has also developed a companion stand-alone program called TimeSync which is crucial during the validation of the LandTrendr-delineated disturbances. This tool also needs to be upgraded to be compatible with current Windows operating systems. This agreement would allow the I&M networks to work collaboratively with OSU to ensure I&M networks receive the specific tools they need to continue their respective long-term monitoring programs without interruption. Oregon State University will also facilitate easier use of LandTrendr for the public and other researchers because this service is being moved to cloud computing which will greatly increase compute speed, decrease the amount of data storage necessary at the network offices, and remove the need for high level computing within the office. STATEMENT OF WORK RECIPIENT AGREES TO: 1. Provide computer code on running LandTrendr through Google Earth Engine 2. Provide documented workflow on Google Earth Engine 3. Provide computer code to process output rasters of changes to polygons of change 4. Provide updated version of TimeSync compatible with Windows 10 5. Provide documented workflow on installing and running TimeSync NATIONAL PARK SERVICE AGREES TO: 1. NPS staff will assist in development, testing, and deployment of tools and computer code written by OSU. 2. NPS staff will provide training data necessary to test code and tools. 3. NPS staff will help distribute tools, computer code, and knowledge of the process to the public. 4. NPS will provide orientation to park natural resource managers and additional I&M staff who show interest in using the newly developed tools.

Additional Information on Eligibility
THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS- This is a Single Source Award for Oregon State University. NPS did not solicit full and open competition for this award based on the unique qualifications of the researchers at OSU. These scientists are uniquely qualified for this task because they have written all of the computer code to implement LandTrendr and have also written the code for TimeSync. They are also at the forefront of change detection techniques using the entire time series of Landsat imagery. They have decades of experience in this narrowly focused area and have published numerous peer-reviewed journals directly related to these techniques and tools.- THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS
