World of Change: 25 pairs of remote sensing images

World of Change | Geography Education

"Earth is constantly changing. Some changes are a natural part of the climate system, such as the seasonal expansion and contraction of the Arctic sea ice pack. The responsibility for other changes, such as the Antarctic ozone hole, falls squarely on humanity’s shoulders. Our World of Change series documents how our planet’s land, oceans, atmosphere, and Sun are changing over time."

The Carnegie Airborne Observatory - tropical biomass mapping with Airborne Taxonomic Mapping System AToMS (lidar + hyperspectral + multispectral? (I think))

The Carnegie Airborne Observatory (CAO) uses a pair of lasers that send out 400,000 pulses/min toward the ground and create a 3D map of a forest and the vegetation it contains. The lasers can tell differences in forest biomass. In this image, taken near Puerto Maldonado in the lowland Peruvian Amazon, the densest biomass is in red and the sparsest in yellow. Patches of deforested land have very low biomass and are shown in light blue; sparse riverbank vegetation is in darker blue. (CAO)
