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.
Landsat-based Global Forest Watch alerts seem to be helping slow down forest loss in Africa.
Landsat shows some of the ways in which COVID-19 is changing the environment.
A new study reports a net increase of 5.38 petagrams of forest biomass between 1984 and 2016; carbon-wise, that is equivalent to a train of loaded coal cars long enough to wrap itself around Earth nearly 34 times.
Landsat and ICESat-2 satellite data have made it possible for scientists to develop maps showing the “quality” of tropical forests.
