DOINews: NASA DEVELOP Students working with the North Central Climate Science Center
A team of NASA DEVELOP students at Colorado State University are working with the North Central Climate Science Center to understand the impacts of forest change on Mountain Pine Beetle infestation. The team is using a time-series array of NASA Landsat products and multiple additional geospatial data (e.g. elevation, slope, aspect, soils) to assess changes in forest composition and structure over space and time allowing agency partners to better understand the impacts from Mountain Pine Beetle infestation.
