New Map Shows Size of Forests in U.S.


A new map created by the Woods Hole Research Center shows the viagra cialis levitra height, coverage and where can i buy propecia carbon storage levels of discount levitra purchase forests in the U.S.  The map was put together by using NASA satellite images from 2000-2001 as well as ground-level surveys by the USGS and USDA Forest Service.

The dataset for the map includes the forest measurements amount of carbon stored in vegetation as of 2000.  The scientists involved in the project will use the map as a baseline to monitor changes in forest cover and the carbon cycle.  This will allow them to make predictions about climate change and wildfire risks, help species conservation and even regulate the timber industry.

This is the viagra online without prescription first map to provide canopy height and carbon storage information at this level of detail.  You can check out the full high-resolution map and dataset here.

Gotta love confusing maps! WTF is this? Is red good because there are a lot of trees there, or is red bad because they are storing a lot of carbon that will be released upon their death? Did I miss something? I also never saw anything denoting canopy height. Also I doubt the validity of this map as the area of the SE I'm in I checked and it has it mapped as "No wooded mass" when there are forests all over the place competing with Walmarts and how much does levitra cost Targets and malls.

Fix the title, please.

Aaugh, had to turn my head around because of 5mg viagra the title being misleading. This is an -inventory- of aboveground woody biomass and carbon, not an estimate of forests' -capacity- to store carbon, which is discount viagra india mostly determined by forest soils. If we actually knew about the latter we'd probably know where (literally) the missing terrestrial sink was...

To answer the where to find cialis above commenter, the Red areas have especially thick forest stands. It looks like this data was compiled from remote sensing, which does have difficulty dealing with sparse forests.

The Appalachian Mtn. range is a densely forested area as shown by your map;

The highest mountain east of the Mississippi pales in comparison to the mountains out west. Standing at 6684 feet above sea level, Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina attracts hikers, bikers, campers and leafers yearlong. Scientists and atmospheric researchers have also become frequent visitors. Due to look there lowest price for viagra the relatively high elevation, the effects of acid rain have hit Mt. Mitchell hard. Forests at higher altitudes are more often cloaked in clouds or fog for much of the year.

Researchers are now aware that acid rain is a major cause of the degradation and even death of many forests. Acid rain weakens trees by poisoning the soil and nutrients that are essential to life. Clouds, soil and soil porosity play a major impact in the filtration of some of where can i purchase viagra the toxins in acid rain. Drinking water, especially in the East Coast, has become more acidic because of our own emissions produced.

Turn off lights, computers, and other appliances when you’re not using them.
Use energy-efficient appliances: lighting, air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, washing machines and order cialis other appliances.
Only use electric appliances when you need them.
Keep your thermostat at 68 °F in the winter and 72°F in the summer.
Insulate your home as best you can.
Carpool, use public transportation, or better yet, walk or bicycle whenever possible.
Buy vehicles with low NOx emissions, and properly maintain your vehicle.
