During photosynthesis, all plants emit low-levels of infrared light. Now, through the use of satellite technology, scientists are beginning to observe and quantify the health and wellness of forests through this combined flouresence. Troy Magney with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory helped co-author a paper discussing this science and it's findings. He joins Chris Cherniak and Glen Wright to discuss the work and what it might mean to forest management.
