C)Monitoring worlds forests By the time we find out about deforestation, it’s usually too late to take action.Scientists have been studying forests for centuries, chronicling the vital importance of these ecosystems for human society. But most of us still lack timely and reliable information about where, when, and why forests are disappearing.

This is about to change with the launch of Global Forest Watch an online forest monitoring system created by the World Resources Institute. Google and a group of more than 40 partners. Global Forest Watch uses technologies including. Google Earth Engine and Google Maps Engine to map the world’s forests with satellite imagery. Detect changes in forest cover in near-real-time, and make this information freely available to anyone with Internet access.

By accessing the most current and reliable information, everyone can learn what’s happening in forests around the world. Now that we have the ability to peer into forests, a number of telling stories are beginning to emerge.

Global forest loss far exceeds forest gain

monitoring worlds forestsmonitoring worlds forests
Legend: Red = tree cover loss • Blue= Tree cover gain

According to data from the University of Maryland and Google. The world lost more than 500 million acres of forest between 2000 and 2012. That’s the equivalent of losing 50 soccer fields’ worth of forests every minute of every day for the past 13 years! By contrast. Only 0.8 million km2 have regrown, been planted. Or restored during the same period.

The United States’ most heavily forested region is made up of production forests

Legend: Pink = tree cover loss • Blue= Tree cover gain

The Southern United States is home to the nation’s most heavily forested region. Making up 29 percent of the total U.S. forest land. Interestingly, the majority of this region is “production forests.” The mosaic of loss (pink) and gain (blue) in the above map shows how forests throughout this region are used as crops grown and harvested in five-year cycles to produce timber or wood pulp for paper production. F)Monitoring worlds forests

This practice of “intensive forestry” is used all over the world to provide valuable commodities. And bolster regional. And national economies. WRI analysissuggests that if managers of production forests embrace a “multiple ecosystem services strategy”. They will be able to generate additional benefits such as biodiversity. Carbon storage. And water filtration.

Forests are protected in Brazil’s indigenous territories

monitoring worlds forests

Legend: Pink = tree cover loss • Dark green= forest • Light green = Degraded land or pastures

The traditional territory of Brazil’s Surui tribe is an island of green surrounded by lands that have been significantly degraded and deforested over the past 10+ years. Indigenous communities often rely on forests for their livelihoods and cultural heritage and therefore have a strong incentive to manage forests sustainably. However, many indigenous communities struggle to protect their lands against encroachment by illegal loggers. Which may be seen in Global Forest Watch using annual data from the University of Maryland and Google, or monthly alerts from Imazon. A Brazilian NGO and GFW partner. G)Monitoring worlds forests

Make Your Own Forest Map

Previously, the data required to make these maps was difficult to obtain and interpret, and most people lacked the resources necessary to access, view, and analyze the the information. With Global Forest Watch, this data is now open to anyone with Internet access. We encourage you to visit Global Forest Watch andmake your own forest map. There are many stories to tell about what is happening to forests around the world—and your stories can lead to action to protect these special and threatened places. What story will you tell? monitoring worlds forests

C)We want to create technology that helps millions of others understand our changing world and live more sustainably. Whether it’s connecting people with public transit routes. Or using the data that powers. Google Earth to help you see if your roof is good for solar panels. In honor of Earth Day this month, we’ve gathered together some of the ways Google can help you reduce your everyday emissions and learn more about preserving our world. Google Earth Engine Global. Monitoring forests and wildlifeGoogle Earth satellite technology gives scientists. And environmentalists a way to measure and visualize changes of the world on both land and water. This technology can have great impact on monitoring endangered animal populations around the world. For example, with the help of Global Forest Watch. Powered by Google Earth Engine. Scientists at the. University of Minnesota are suggesting that wild tiger populations may rebound by 2022, due to the efforts to restore tiger habitats in key regions.             google earth engine global

Going solar. We’re also working with organizations like Sierra Club and their Ready for 100 campaign to help analyze the solar potential of cities across the US.

D)Looking to generate clean energy savings with solar power on your home? Check out Project Sunroof. A solar calculator that estimates the impact and potential savings of installing solar on the roof of your home. Taking Google Earth imagery and overlaying annual sun exposure and weather patterns. Sunroof is able to assess viable roof space for solar panel installation. Estimate the value of solar and savings based on local energy costs, and connect you with providers of solar panels in your area. Google Earth Engine Global.

E)As of this week. Sunroof expanded to 42 states across the U.S. (from 10 states in December). Which makes imagery and data available for a solar analysis to 43 million rooftops. We’re also working with organizations like Sierra Club. And their Ready for 100 campaign to help analyze the solar potential of cities across the US.

Measuring air pollutants.

F)For the past few years. F)Google Earth Outreach and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) have been working together to map methane leaks from natural gas pipelines under our streets. Since methane is a very potent greenhouse gas (GHG). Even small leaks can add up to big emissions that can hurt our climate. By attaching methane analyzers to select Street View cars, we’ve driven more than 7,500 miles. And have mapped 4,200+ leaks in 10 cities. What we found ranges from an average of one leak per mile. (in Boston) to one leak every 200 miles (in Indianapolis). Demonstrating the effectiveness of techniques like using plastic piping instead of steel for pipeline construction. We hope utilities can use this data to prioritize the replacement of gas mains. And service lines (like New Jersey’s PSE&G announced last fall). We’re also partnering with Aclima to measure many more pollutants with. Street View cars in California communities through this year. Anyone can explore the maps at http://www.edf.org/methanemaps.

C)We’re excited to announce today that, in a collaboration led by Dr. Matthew Hansen at the University of Maryland, we’ve built the first detailed maps of the world’s forests, from 2000-2012. Documenting and quantifying forest landscape changes such as fires, tornadoes, disease and logging.The most significant findings were that the overall rate of tropical deforestation is increasing. And global forests have experienced a net loss of 1.5M sq km during 2000-2012 due to both natural (disturbance) and human causes.

E)The detailed study was published today in the journalScience, High-Resolution Global Maps of 21st-Century Forest Cover Change. Key to the study’s success was the collaboration between scientists at the University of Maryland, who developed the models to analyze Landsat satellite data, and computer scientists at Google. Who then used Google Earth Engine technology to run these models on more than 650,000 Landsat images. While the analysis would have taken a single computer more than 15 years to perform.

Here are some other notable sites:
