Fig. 4. Subsets of the multitemporal composite used in Fig. 2 are draped over a digital elevation model (DEM) to illustrate land cover in both reserved and unreserved narrow, seasonally inundated valleys, i.e., areas of similar soil types. Long-term forest cover stability, i.e., dark areas, on these soils types is observed almost exclusively within those valleys in which forest reserves were created. In unreserved valleys, forests are either absent, i.e., bright valleys, or we see evidence of heavy harvesting or occasional cropping in the remaining extent of forest, i.e., red and green speckles. The composite was constructed by Sean Sweeney.
