This report presents a preliminary remote sensing study of an expanse of woodlands in the middle of Cape Ann, Massachusetts known as Dogtown is described. Using 35 years of Landsat TM data provided through Google’s Earth Engine we compare and contrast vegetation changes at selected study areas in Dogtown. Successional forests, swamps, fens, and other areas are examined. Preliminary results reveal anomalous changes in two fens, one of which may have been caused by the operation of a nearby municipal compost facility.
