CAO Imagery as Art for Scientific Journals

Media Coverage
Climate Change
Land Use
Imaging Spectroscopy
Laser Scanning

Since its inception in 2006, CAO has produced interesting data art for numerous scientific journals. Making the December 2016 cover of Ecological Applications, this image shows CAO’s Visible-to-Shortwave Infrared (VSWIR) imaging spectrometer data over a reforested landscape in Panama. Different colors indicate differences in growth rates among tropical trees.

Here areĀ a few other examples of journal covers enriched with CAO imagery:

CAO-Drought in PNAS

This image of drought-stricken woodlands in California made the cover of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) in 2016.

CAO-Natural Inquirer

A map of forest carbon stocks throughout Hawaii was featured on the cover of the Natural Inquirer, a children’s magazine, in 2012.
