Researchers analyzed forest loss rates across the entire Amazon between 2001 and 2014.
Tropical Forest Degradation Means More Carbon Dioxide is Released into the Atmosphere Than is Absorbed
Satellite images targeting areas of tropical Asia, Africa, and the Americas have shown that some tropical forests are dispelling more carbon than they are taking in.
Using satellite images, researchers established a method of calculating the distance between any point in the continental United States and the nearest forested area.
This geography quiz features ten satellite images each showing an anthropogenic activity. Can you figure out what the human activity shown on each image is?
