H2 is already the title of the page - do not use this!

H2 does not send the next content to a new line. This paragraph was added so that the other H content does not appear to the right of H2.

Heading 3

Heading 3

Heading 4

Heading 5
Heading 6 - The extra space above is set in the h6 tag.

The H6 heading appears as all caps in the Conduit WYSIWYG but displays in sentence case on staging..

Unordered and Ordered Lists

Unordered List

  • List item one
  • List item two
  • List item three
  • List item four

Ordered List

  1. List item one
  2. List item two
  3. List item three:
    A second line for list item three using a <br>

Conduit strips <p> in lists. Use <br> in a list to make a new line.

This list has a class of "split-list" applied to it:

  • one
  • two
  • three
  • four
  • five
  • six
  • seven
  • eight
  • nine

Class="split-list" makes columns in WYSIWYG but not on staging.

These two columns are made with div tags.

There are a number of examples of how researchers and managers have used remotely sensed data in their activities. In one such example, researchers at the U.S. Forest Service used satellite and ground-based data to assess the status of the Northern Spotted Owl, which has been listed as “threatened” by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The number of Northern Spotted Owls is declining by an average of 4 percent each year across its geographical range.

Ecologists at the Forest Service used Landsat data of land cover in Olympic National Forest to estimate where spotted owls might be present (see the Earth Observatory story, Spotting the Spotted Owl: 30 Years of Habitat Change). By relating the satellite views of forest cover to ground-based observations of where spotted owls nest and roost, scientists were able to map their habitat and detect where the habitat is being disturbed by timber harvesting, fires, and insect damage.

From the Arctic to the Amazon, terrestrial and marine ecosystems are changing rapidly in response to human activity and a changing climate. Understanding these changes is essential to the sustainability of all life on Earth, including human well-being. Satellites and airborne instruments take observations of the world's land, fresh water, oceans, and atmosphere every day, opening up new opportunities for studying ecosystem change. Since 1994, NASA and other federal agencies have made these remotely sensed data free for use by scientists and managers, providing new opportunities for ecological research and applications. But there are many unanswered questions in the fields of biological diversity and ecology that these data could inform.

Traditional field research, where researchers document the presence of plants, animals, and other environmental factors directly, can be limited by the time it takes to make the measurements and the geographic range of the research. Remotely sensed data can complement traditional field data and help researchers directly measure the distribution of plants and animals, or indirectly estimate their
