AbstractWe are currently witnessing an unprecedented mountain pine beetle population expansion across North America, transforming some of our most productive pine forests into enormous wastelands composed of unhealthy and dead trees that contribute to the global greenhouse gas emissions. Currently there is little hope of stopping the spread of MPB before our pine forests are devastated. Scientists believe that if we are extremely lucky, very cold weather will slow the beetles, but they expect that expansion of the MPB will only come to a halt when their host plant is decimated. We at ISCA Technologies believe that it is our social responsibility to create viable tools to manage these bark beetles before they irrevocably modify the North American forest's structure, and SPLATverb is our response to this challenge.
