    Description

    This issue of "Science Findings" focuses on remote sensing research and how it can be used to assess a landscape. The work of PNW Research Station scientists Tom Spies and Warren Cohen and their use of satellite technology in developing the coastal landscape analysis and modeling study (CLAMS) is featured. The CLAMS study area includes more than 5 million acres in Oregon extending from the Pacific Ocean to the Willamette Valley fringe. Field and satellite data are combined to produce a picture of current vegetation and other resources in the Oregon Coast Range. The data are then used to model changing patterns of vegetation cover, wildlife habitat, and land use in the region over the next 100 years. The CLAMS study will produce the tools needed to assess sustainability of different forest and land use policies over time. The study also will help to visualize how social and ecological change will affect the landscape: useful information for land managers and land owners alike.
