China’s Forest Recovery Shows Hope for Mitigating Global Climate Change

China's sweeping program to restore forests across the country is working. The vast destruction of China's forests, leveled after decades of logging, floods and conversion to farmland, has become a story of recovery, according to the first independent verification published in today's Science Advances by Michigan State University (MSU) researchers. "It is encouraging that China's

Finding Where U.S. Forests Have Been Undisturbed for a Quarter Century

Dec. 14, 2015—Chengquan Huang is a Research Professor in the University of Maryland's Geographical Sciences Department. This afternoon at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting, Huang presented a poster explaining where to find U.S. forests that have been undisturbed for last 25 years. His research relied on Landsat to both find these forests and understand forest

Biologists Integrate Unmanned Aircraft Technology in Canadian Wildlife Study

In a portion of Manitoba, Canada, so remote you have to fly in by helicopter, a research team led by the University of North Dakota and the American Museum of Natural History spent the summer in the polar bear capital of the world deploying the latest tool – Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) -- in a

Drones Could Make Forest Conservation Monitoring Significantly Cheaper

Amsterdam, Sept. 28, 2015—Drones could monitor the success of forest regeneration in the tropics, suggests a new study published in Biological Conservation. The researchers say automating the monitoring process leads to equally accurate results and could save a significant amount of time and money. The new research has been selected by an international scientific committee to

Forest-Mapping Instrument for Space Station Passes Major Milestone

A laser-based instrument for mapping the 3-D structure of Earth’s forests has passed a major milestone toward deployment on the International Space Station (ISS). The Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI), led by the University of Maryland, College Park, and built by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, successfully transitioned to “Phase B,” moving

ORNL-led Team Spearheads Approach to Improve Ecosystem Models

May 28, 2015—Predicting how forests will respond to increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide involves understanding the interplay among carbon dioxide, nutrients, water, plant and soil processes. This multitude of variables challenges scientists who are trying to gauge how future ecosystems will react in a changing climate. Oak Ridge National Laboratory ecologist Rich Norby has spent

New Crowdsourced Forest Maps Offer Unique Insights

Austria’s International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) mapped global forest cover with its crowdsourcing Geo-Wiki team. The new maps show the location and extent of forests for ecology, climate change and economic modelling as well as provide insight to researchers looking for the best reference information to estimate deforestation and forest degradation.
