Mapping Alaska's Forests
NASA and the U.S. Forest Service are surveying the forests of Interior Alaska. The airborne study using an advanced instrument will create a 3D map of the forest composition. This will enable scientists to see patterns of fire recovery and provide a benchmark for assessing future changes to the region.
