Abstract: Tropical deforestation contributes 12% of total anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions globally. Illegal logging is costing nations tens of billions of dollars each year. Although governments are making headway on agreements to stop this destruction, so far there is no coherent plan to monitor tropical forests on the scale or timescales necessary to do so.
