Annual Mortality Maps
The US Forest Service conducts annual flights to assess forest conditions and map dead trees. These flights produce maps that have been helpful to describe the bark beetle epidemic over the past couple years. Maps are accessible here.
You can learn about how the maps are created by examining a recorded presentation entitled Aerial Surveys of Forest Mortality in California by Jeffrey Moore, US Forest Service. YouTube recording here. Powerpoint presentation here
