This is a map of change in vegetation in the North Fork Battle sub-basin for the periods 1991-1996 and 1994-1999, displayed with KRIS sub-basins, 1:100,000 scale streams, and the locations sampled as part of the Battle Creek Watershed Assessment (Terraqua, 2004). Vegetation change were calculated based on Landsat satellite images. Canopy loss (red and orange) represent vegetation decreases due to recent recent disturbance such as timber harvesting or fire. Green on the map represents an increase in canopy, indicating regrowth from previous timber harvesting or fire. Data were provided by the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region Remote Sensing Lab, in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry.
