Recent Anthropogenic Changes within the Forest Landscapes of Nova Scotia

(2009-06-25) A report of Nova Scotia's forest landscapes that reveals the dramatic pace and scale of recent human-caused changes due to industrial activities in recent decades. GFWC examined old and new satellite images for almost the entire area of Nova Scotia and combined what we saw with existing information in order to map the industrial-caused changes, primarily logging, that have occurred throughout much of the province, from approximately 1990-2007. The resulting maps and analyses paint a stark picture of industry's impacts.
