UK Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Natural Environment Research Council . The Institute of Terrestrial Ecology will develop long-term, multidisciplinary research and exploit new technology to advance the science of terrestrial ecology, leading to a better understanding and quantification of the physical, chemical and biological processes of the land.

The Woods Hole Research Center, MA c95 . (Peter Schlesinger, GIS & Remote Sensing Laboratory, Woods Hole Research Center, PO Box 296, 13 Church Street, Woods Hole, MA 02543, tel: (508)540-9900, ext 118 fax: (508)540-9700, email: pschles@whrc.org, WWW: www.whrc.org ) The Woods Hole Research Center addresses the great issues of environment through scientific research and education and through applications of science in public affairs. Climate change and the warming of the earth are at the core of our research, and we specialize in global forests because of their controlling influence on climate. ...The WHRC has had a long standing interest in the major forested regions of the world. Remote sensing, (the use of digital satellite images) has a particular utility in regions that are large, poorly understood, and changing rapidly. ...One of our long-term goals is the production of a Global Forest Inventory - a measure of current global forest extent and composition that will help us monitor future changes in this invaluable resource....In an effort to move forward global land cover mapping, we have produced here, from NOAA AVHRR data, the first 1 km resolution land cover map of all South America. South America has been divided into 39 different land covers including recent deforestation.
