Project Title:Landscape-Scale Histories and Active Monitoring of Disturbance, Seasonality and Greenness Trends for ABOVE from Landsat
Project Lead: Curtis Woodcock, Boston University
Project Funding: 2015 - 2018

Project Type:NASA -- joined ABoVE in 2015
Solicitation:NASA: Terrestrial Ecology (2014)
Abstract: Boreal and arctic ecosystems are highly dynamic and spatially heterogeneous, and are undergoing rapid change in response to climate forcing. Understanding the nature, magnitude, and drivers behind these changes requires information that captures land cover dynamics at spatial scales that are ecological meaningful, and historical information that pr ...
