NASA and U.S. Forest Service maps used to help recovery from California Megafires

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – New maps of two recent California megafires that combine unique data sets from the U.S. Forest Service and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, are answering some of the urgent questions that follow a huge wildfire: In all the acres of blackened landscape, where are the live trees to provide seed and regrow the forest? Which dead trees could endanger workers rebuilding roads and trails? What habitats have been created for fire-dependent wildlife species?

The maps, so detailed that they show individual trees, cover the areas of two California megafires — the 2013 Rim fire, which burned more than 250,000 acres (1,000 square kilometers) near and in Yosemite National Park, and 2014’s very intense King fire near Lake Tahoe — before, during and after the active burns.

The 2013 Rim fire in and near Yosemite National Park, California, was the third largest in the state's history, burning more than 250,000 acres. Almost two years later, forest restoration efforts are still ongoing. (USFS/Mike McMillan)

LBL to hold Working with Wool programs at The Homeplace

 

Land Between the Lakes - LBLGolden Pond, KY – The Homeplace 1850’s Farm at Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area hosts a day dedicated to working with wool on Saturday, April 11th, from 10:00am-4:00pm. Invited artist, Gary Larson, will give the Homeplace sheep their first “haircut” of the year, 1850’s style.

“The sheep are ready to shed their wool from the past year and that means new fleeces to wash, tease, card, spin, and dye, “ says Cindy Earls, Lead Interpreter at the Homeplace. “We will show each step it takes to process our sheep’s raw wool into yarn, which we can knit or weave into clothing. Visitors get hands-on helping with every task.”
