Proposal: Question: How much rain does it take to stop the devastation from the bark beetles?
The bark beetle has been known the kill trees. The bark beetle makes more damage every year because the rain fall has not been coming lately. This makes bigger and longer drought also making the trees weaker and weaker.
Approach:: Manipulate the moisture to determine the variance that cause the Bark Beetle to move from decomposing trees to live trees.
