Identifying Beaver Dams with Remote Sensing (under construction)

TL;DR: physically getting to beaver ponds and taking high quality data on them in the field is hard. Beaver ponds are muddy, mucky, sensitive ecosystems teeming with wildlife. They’re also enormous. Instead of tromping around the field, I develop methods to find them and collect data from them using satellite and aerial imagery. Satellites = Beaver Locators
