ForWarn

Overview and Applicability

ForWarn is a satellite-based monitoring and assessment tool that provides an overview of potential forest disturbances.  ForWarn produces national maps (lower 48 states) every eight days, using NASA MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) satellite imagery to recognize and track changes in vegetation health and condition.  Current satellite "greenness" is compared with expected or maximum greenness seen over a historical baseline period.
