Recent Anthropogenic Changes within the Northern Boreal, Southern Taiga, and Hudson Plains Ecozones of Québec

Satellite images from different dates (~1990 and ~2000) for a selected study area in Québec were compared using a differencing algorithm so that we could assess where recent forest disturbances have occurred. The report includes three maps translated into Cree and is available in both English and French!
