New remote sensing paper of cheatgrass die-offs

At last! Our paper "Development of remote sensing indicators for mapping episodic die-off of an invasive annual grass (Bromus tectorum) from the Landsat archive" has been accepted in Ecological Indicators. The image below shows some of our mapped die-off polygons overlaid on a Landsat composite image (SWIR2, SWIR1, and NIR bands in the red, green, and blue channels).  Yellow areas have a high probability of being mapped as a cheatgrass die-off area.
