How forests in the U.S. have changed over the past 25 years
Today’s Video of the Day comes from NASA Goddard and features a look at how forests across the United States have changed over the last quarter-century.
Scientists have used data from the Landsat satellites to compile a look at forest disturbances due to human activity, natural disasters, and natural aging.
According to the research team, the most drastic changes were related to fires in the western United States and logging in the Pacific northwest, Maine, and southeast.
