EA cover - Dec 2016

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.
