Featured Publication: Highlights of Satellite-Based Forest Change Recognition and Tracking Using the ForWarn System
The ForWarn forest monitoring tool has been operating since 2010, and Eastern Threat Center researchers have used it to detect numerous forest disturbances due to a variety of causes. Center scientists Steve Norman, Bill Hargrove, and Bill Christie co-authored a report featuring examples of some of these forest disturbances accompanied by rich imagery captured in ForWarn maps. The report is intended to introduce general and semi-technical audiences to the ForWarn tool, and to demonstrate how it can help federal, state, tribal, and private land managers focus time and resources when monitoring and responding to forest disturbances. Read the news release, and view the report.
