Research Highlights

Mapping forest disturbance agents with Landsat time series (2017)
SRS-2017-159 Disturbance plays an important role in shaping forests’ ability to sequester carbon and provide critical ecosystem services such as clean air and water. Satellite remote sensing offers a flexible and cost-effective way to monitor disturbance over large areas. However, most disturbance mapping algorithms only show where and when change has occurred. Using information derived from Landsat time series, Forest Service researchers accurately mapped five different types of forest disturbance including fire, harvest, insects and disease, wind, and conversion (the loss of forest to other land uses).
