Instagram: Mapping Alaska's Forests

This is a 15-second video explaining why NASA and the U.S. Forest Service are surveying Alaska's forests.

NASA and the U.S. Forest Service are surveying the forests of Interior Alaska by plane. An advanced instrument will be used to create a 3D map of the forest composition. This will enable scientists to see patterns of fire recovery and provide a benchmark for future changes to the region.
