  • FOREST ECONOMICS AND RESOURCE ANALYSIS: RESOURCE ANALYSIS LINKS

     

    FIA reports on status and trends in forest area and location; in the species, size, and health of trees; in total tree growth, mortality, and removals by harvest; in wood production and utilization rates by various products; and in forest land ownership. 

     

    The EVALIDator can produce estimates of growth, removals and mortality for individual inventories.

    The Southern Research Station is part of the Nation's largest forestry research organization—USDA Forest Service Research and Development—the leading organization for research on natural resource management and sustainability in the United States. 

     

    The project is a multi-year research effort that forecasts changes in southern forests between 2010 and 2060. 

     

    The ETPPRP is a long-term comprehensive research program investigating the factors affecting the management of loblolly and slash pine plantations in East Texas. 

     

    PINEMAP focuses on the 20 million acres of planted pine forests managed by private landowners in the Atlantic and Gulf coastal states from Virginia to Texas, plus Arkansas and Oklahoma. 

     

    ForWarn provides near-real-time tracking of vegetation changes across landscapes in the U.S. Useful for both monitoring disturbance events as well as year-to-year variability, derived products can also be used to develop insights into seasonal and inter-annual dynamics.

     

    The Climate Change Atlas documents the current and possible future distribution of 134 tree species and 147 bird species in the Eastern United States and gives detailed information on environmental characteristics defining these distributions. 

     

    The BAER Imagery Support program is a cooperative effort between the USDA Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications Center and the U.S. Geological Survey Center for Earth Resources Observation and Science. The Centers provide rapid delivery of satellite imagery, Burned Area Reflectance Classifications, and other geospatial data to Forest Service and DOI BAER teams, respectively.

     

    Mapping the Severity of Springs Fire from Space

     

    MTBS is a multi-year project designed to consistently map the burn severity and perimeters of fires across all lands of the U.S. from 1984 and beyond. 

     

    Landsat represents the world's longest continuously acquired collection of space-based moderate-resolution land remote sensing data.
