  • Forest Loss

    Results from time-series analysis of 654,178 Landsat 7 ETM+ images in characterizing global forest extent and change from 2000 through 2012. For additional information about these results, please see the associated journal article (Hansen et al., Science 2013). Forest loss during the period 2000–2012, defined as a stand-replacement disturbance, or a change from a forest […]

  • Bathymetry

    Nested polygons at 1000 meter intervals created using SRTM Plus. Please note, the minus 200 meter bathymetry layer is buffered slightly around all coastlines to avoid coastline overlaps. Isobaths surrounding islands, seamounts, and near other steep slopes received considerable manual generalization to improve legibility.

  • Mangroves

    Compiled from LandSat imagery covering the period 1997-2000. Status and distributions of global mangroves have been mapped using recently available Global Land Survey (GLS) data and the Landsat archive. Approximately 1000 Landsat scenes were interpreted using hybrid supervised and unsupervised digital image classifcation techniques. Each image was normalized for variation in solar angle and earth-sun distance […]

  • Marine Biodiversity

    The Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) and its global network of Regional and Thematic OBIS Nodes integrate marine species distribution data from many sources over a wide range of marine themes; from the poles to the equator and from microbes to whales. OBIS is at the same time the data integration component of the Census […]

  • Volcanos History

    Volcanic history is sourced via custom search of the VOGRIPA database requesting records of volcanic eruption in Indonesia. VOGRIPA is a component of the Global Volcano Model (GVM) international collaboration. Both GVM and VOGRIPA are officially endorsed by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior (IAVCEI). VOGRIPA is an international partnership […]
