Horn thumb

This video shows Landsat 5 imagery of Beaver Dam Wash from 1985 through 2011. Green represents vegetation and red represents recent fire. It was provided by BYU PhD candidate Kevin Horn. He is examining the potential for ecosystem recovery by investigating post-fire plant physiology, seed dispersal through small mammals, and landscape scale relationships of vegetation and soil moisture with changing climatic events via remote sensing.
