UVA Environmental Professor Helping to Map And Assess the World's Forests Via Biomass Satellite

The European Space Agency is set to develop a new, Earth-observing satellite that will map and monitor global forests.  UVA's Hank Shugart, a professor of environmental science, has been a key player in convincing the agency to fund and develop the $525-million satellite.  He talks with correspondent Charles Fishburne in this WCVE Science Matters report.
