Historical and current satellite images were used to provide a history of land cover changes in a forest reserve in Ghana since 1989 for a client investigating the investment potential under REDD. Since associated estimates in biomass change over time were needed, a rapid assessment was made by using IPCC default values and literature review. To provide additional information on threats to the forest area, a fire history was compiled for the area using a satellite-derived fire hotspot detection database service available from NASA.
