Scientists have been tracking the distribution of the mangrove forests in the Ayeyarwady Delta using satellite observations dating back to the 1970s. The change map shows when and where mangrove loss occurred. Green indicates current mangrove forest as of 2005. However, red dominates the map, which means that much of the mangrove loss occurred during the 1990s.
