    (A) North American forests and their ecosystems are some of the most important and difficult to monitor. Satellite surveillance allows us to detect fires in these remote areas and direct firefighting activities early so fires can be quickly contained. (B) Satellite surveillance has been a great help in the war against smugglers. Law enforcement officials are able to use satellites to track and predict the activities of smugglers. We are all safer because of satellite surveillance. (C) Satellite surveillance helps us identify the different types of vegetation that cover remote areas. We can then record and catalogue the different types of grasses, bushes, and trees. (D) Satellites can help us monitor weather conditions all over the world. This can help travelers plan for the weather when they are traveling to other states or countries.
