Abstract

With current models predicting aquifer depletion as early as 2080, the American Great Plains region approaches a critical threshold that will test the resilience of its productive landscape. In response, this project challenges the Jeffersonian grid by speculating that the future landscape will be annually reorganized by hyper-local climate prediction that responds to micro-topography and soil typologies. A series of dynamic landscape infrastructures collect and interpret data to define a Meridian of Fertility where short grass prairie ends and insurable productivity begins.

Keywords Climate      Resiliency      Productive Landscape      Data Collecting      Interpreting Great Plains
