        The Color of Drought | Science Visualization

        Since 2011, the punishing, millennial-scale drought in California has done far more than turn lawns brown and raise water bills—it has also taken a severe toll on forests, killing more than 100 million trees and stressing tens of millions to the point that they might not survive another dry year. In this silent video, view color-coded data which show how California's trees were affected by drought in 2016.

        This visualization was created by Carnegie Airborne Observatory and featured in bioGraphican online magazine powered by the California Academy of Sciences, a renowned scientific and educational institution dedicated to exploring, explaining, and sustaining life on Earth.
