For the sake of our future, it is critical that all people. Including the next generation, understand our global forests in order to manage them sustainably.

Today, Science in the Classroom,Dr. Matt Hansen of the University of Maryland. And Google Earth Engine are presenting. Global Forest Change Explorer to help engage young people in forest conservation.

E)Fly to different parts of the world and compare data.
A number of years ago. Dr. Matt Hansen and a team of researchers at the University of Maryland turned to. Google Earth Engine to map high-resolution global forest cover with. Earth Engine’s cloud-based image processing and computing. The team mapped global forest loss and gain from 2000 to 2012 at 30-meter resolution for the entire globe. In 2013, the methods and results were published in Science Magazine and online for everyone to explore. These findings are now an important part of the website. Global Forest Watch. Which gives governments and decision makers free access to the data and tools required to monitor and manage their forests.google earth engine global forest bring

Science in the Classroom. (SitC) thought this was great research to bring into the classroom and make available to anyone online. SitC packages annotated research papers with supplemental teaching materials to help pre-college.

And college students understand the structure and workings of scientific research. SitC and Google Earth Engine built the. Global Forest Change Explorer to make. Dr. Hansen’s data accessible to a younger audience.

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.

D)Mapping deforestation. Global Forest Change, 2000-2012: individual maps of forest extent, gain, loss, and loss color-coded by year. Click to enlarge.

Sumatra has lost over 50% of its natural forest within the past 30 years. Click to enlarge.

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:

F)Paraguay’s Chaco woodlands within the western half of the country are experiencing rapid deforestation in the development of cattle ranches. The result is the highest rate of deforestation in the world. Click to enlarge. Mapping deforestation.

G)The Siberian larch forests of Yakutia, Russia, are prone to fire during spring to early summer. Such extensive fires result in significant carbon emissions. Click to enlarge. H)Mapping deforestation.
