This project utilized historical Landsat imagery, field-based data and novel remote sensing analytical techniques to map the percent basal area of select species across the northern forest region of the northeastern USA. We also generated improved forest type maps and forest/non-forest classifications.


To provide improved forest cover mapping products for monitoring and research related to forest species composition and changes over time.
