Figure 3. Nested study areas for the Cold Land Processes Field Experiment. The map limits depict the Large Regional Study Area (4.5 x 3.5 degrees) in north central Colorado and south central Wyoming (blue boundary). The Small Regional Study Area (2.5 x 1.5 degrees) boundaries are shown in red. Within that area are the three 25-km x 25-km study areas: North Park, Rabbit Ears, and Fraser. Each of these three areas contains four 1-km x 1-km Intensive Study Areas (not shown).
