C) Global Forest Bring Forests are the mighty lungs of our planet. They absorb carbon dioxide, and emit oxygen on which all people and animals on Earth rely. 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. 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. It is critical that all people, including the next generation, understand our global forests in order to manage them sustainably.

Global Forest Bring Change Explorer website contains maps that are available for interactive analysis as well as an accompanying activity worksheet. It is critical that all people. Including the next generation. Understand our global forests in order to manage them sustainably.

Explorer Tool relies on open data that is used by remote sensing and GIS professionals in their work. Explorer Tool relies on open data that is used by remote sensing and GIS professionals in their work.

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. earthtopomaps.com

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.
Annotations provide supplemental context to Dr. Hansen’s paper
We live in a dynamic world where the pressures of population growth increasingly impact and threaten our forests. Educators can easily flip their classrooms into science labs by combining SitC materials with Global Forest Change Explorer.  It is critical that all people, including the next generation, understand our global forests in order to manage them sustainably.

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.

That’s a loss of forested land comparable in size to the entire state of Alaska.

Google Street View Colorado River

Explore America’s most endangered river on Street View

Google Street View Colorado River March 13, 2014
Google Street View Colorado River This guest post is by Chris Williams. Senior Vice President of Conservation at American Rivers. We’ve partnered with American Rivers to share the adventure of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in Google Maps. -Ed.While you admire its grandeur. Remember that the river is also at risk. One of the United States .                                                               It wasn’t until 1869. when John Wesley Powell led a small exploration party on a rafting trip. That the natural wonders of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon came fully into view.google street view colorado river ColoradoRiver

For 6 million years, the Colorado River Google Street View Colorado River has flowed through the heart of the desert southwest, its waters slowly carving out a canyon so vast it can be seen from space—yet so remote it didn’t appear on early maps of the region. It wasn’t until 1869. When John Wesley Powell led a small exploration party on a rafting trip. That the natural wonders of the Colorado River.

Now with Google Street View. You can ride the whitewater rapids, cruise the sleepy river bends. And discover the side canyons that make the Colorado River a treasured resource.
By the time it reaches the Gulf of California in Mexico. Google Street View Colorado River. The river is barely a trickle—.a ghost of its once magnificent self. We’ve partnered with American Rivers to share the adventure of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in Google Maps. -Ed.While you admire its grandeur.

But it’s also one of the most endangered, dammed, diverted and plumbed rivers in the world, thanks to a century of management policies and practices that have promoted the use of Colorado River water at an unsustainable rate.
Start at an iconic spot like Deer Creek Falls or North Canyon, or climb up to the Nankoweap Granaries. Geology fans will enjoy formations like Hermit Shale andTapeats Sandstone. On your journey, look out for wildlife like big horn sheep and signs of a volcanic dam that naturally occurred centuries ago.

While you admire its grandeur. Remember that the river is also at risk. One of the United States’. most important resources. The Colorado River provides drinking water for 36 million people from Denver to Los Angeles. Supports a $26 billion recreation industry. And irrigates nearly 4 million acres of land that grow 15 percent of our nation’s crops. But it’s also one of the most endangered. Dammed. 2

We’re proud to partner with Google. And Street View to raise awareness of the need to protect and restore the river. It’s time to speak up and protect the wonder of the Grand Canyon. And the riches of a healthy Colorado River. Join American Rivers and help us protect and restore this iconic river of the west—for today and for future generations. google street view colorado river ColoradoRiver By the time it reaches the Gulf of California in Mexico, the river is barely a trickle—a ghost of its once magnificent self.                     You can see evidence of the river’s decline In Street View, like the high water mark (showing 1950s driftwood on top of the rock), or sedimentation along the river’s edgedown by Lake Mead.
But it’s also one of the most endangered, dammed, diverted and plumbed rivers in the world, thanks to a century of management policies and practices that have promoted the use of Colorado River water at an unsustainable rate.
