A complete map of forest disruption in Canada 1985-2011
Researchers from the Canadian Forest Service have created a time-series map of where and how forests have been disrupted between the years of 1985 and 2011. This is specifically tracking logging/harvesting and forest fires. A staggering 10 percent of our country's total forests saw some kind of damage over the almost 30 years. This type of research is helpful in tracking the Earth's carbon cycle, which is critical to understanding our changing climate.
