Oregon has a diverse ecology due to climate, geology, and topography; that diversity is
reflected in the state’s 30 million acres of forests that comprise about half of Oregon’s total land area.

About MODIS
Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)
 
With its sweeping 2,330-km-wide viewing swath, MODIS sees every point on the Earth every one to two days in 36 discrete spectral bands. Consequently, MODIS greatly improves upon the heritage of the NOAA Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) and tracks a wider array of the earth's vital signs than any other Terra sensor. For instance, the sensor measures the percent of the planet's surface that is covered by clouds almost every day.
