CONNECTICUT GYPSY MOTH CATERPILLAR FOREST DEFOLIATION 2016, 2017, and 2018
Researchers at ConnecticutView have developed Gypsy Moth caterpillar forest defoliation extent maps for Connecticut for the years 2016, 2017, and 2018. These maps were created through difference analysis of Enhanced Vegetation Indices derived from Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2 satellite imagery.Maps and images may be downloaded in the Research section in the Navigation tabs above.
