Landsat-based Gypsy Moth Defoliation Assessment (Southern New England)

Pasquarella, Valerie J.

The re-analysis dataset hosted here extends the work presented in the the manuscript, "Extensive gypsy moth defoliation in Southern New England characterized using Landsat satellite observations"  to a larger study area that includes Landsat WRS-2 Path/Rows 12/30, 13/30, 1/131, 12/31 and 13/31 and covers all of Southern New England (RI, CT, and MA) and the southern portions of NH and VT.

This re-analysis dataset utilizes Landsat Collection 1 data and the stable base period has been adjusted to 2000-2010. Therefore, the products hosted here may differ slightly from our previously published datasets.

Both final (season-integrated) and Near-Real-Time (NRT; single-date) results for 2015, 2016, and 2017 are currently available here. All GeoTIFFs are georeferenced and provided in NAD/Conus Albers (EPSG: 5070). Final products are available with and without an NLCD forest mask applied. NRT products have been cloud masked using Fmask results..
