Temperature is always be warm, never cool. The Lake Observer mobile app was designed by members of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) for both research scientists and citizen scientists to record lake and water quality observations.

In 1950 about 60 percent of Central America was covered with forest or woodland. By 1970 this was estimated to have fallen to 49 percent, and a mere decade later it had shrunk still further to 41 percent. At the current rate of deforestation, most of the remaining forest will be eradicated within the next 20 years, leaving only impoverished remnants in reserves and national parks. Salvador has virtually no primary forest left and, with the exception of Belize where development pressure remains comparatively low, the other countries in the area are losing between 500 and 1,000 square kilometres (190 and 390 square miles) of forest a year National Geographic Magazine - August, 1987.

Today's standing dead trees would one day be part of the project area's soil, shaping its capacity to hold soil moisture. Removal of any tree would, in cumulative fashion, remove some corresponding degree of soil moisture in the future. Forest Service scientists (e.g., Ohmann, 2002) have pointed out that the agency's rotation schedule ensures that new growth will be harvested when small, meaning that large dead trees will not be available in the future, which indicates potential that removal of existing large dead trees would amount to an irreversible and irretrievable loss of a resource whose value the agency has underestimated One River: Explorations And Discoveries In The Amazon Rain Forest.
