Landsat’s Critical Role Forest Management
Forest Management Specifics
Fine-tuning remote sensing to protect forests from the spread of dangerous critters.
A new analysis of protected forests worldwide finds that protected forests are unlikely to be cut down when they are surrounded by intact forests.
California’s blue oak woodlands have decreased by more than 1,200 square kilometers.
Scientists use Landsat to track changing patterns of deforestation that tells them how Amazonian agricultural practices have changed, from small family holdings to massive ranching operations.
More than two decades worth of Landsat satellite imagery was used to quantify how beetle outbreaks have impacted high-elevations forests in Colorado, southern Wyoming, and northern New Mexico.
A new method, fusing data from many sources, has been developed for quantifying forests’ role as both carbon sink and carbon source.
