Learn about the diversity of rainforests around our planet and their impact on how we live, no matter where that is. State-of-the-art visualizations demonstrate how ground truth and remote sensing combine to give the most current picture of a dynamic, living ecosystem. The program answers questions about rainforests: why are they located where they are and why are they important for our understanding of life on Earth? Join researchers and scientists in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, with interactions from New York, Texas and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
