    Description

    The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program has partnered with researchers from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the University of Maryland, and other U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service units to identify disturbance patterns across the United States using FIA plot data and time series of Landsat satellite images. Spatially explicit predictions of biomass loss and gain from 1972 to 2002 will be produced in 2-year intervals using 25 Landsat scenes distributed throughout the country. The map-based analyses that will be made possible through this collaboration will complement FIA's current ability to track disturbances at the county and State level.
