Seeing the Forest Through the Leaves: Quantifying Forest Structure & Forest Ecosystem Services with LiDAR
Moskal, L. Monika
MetadataShow full item record
Moskal will provide an overview of trends in remote sensing technology. She will review the applications for remote sensing-based geostatistical modeling for forest inventory, structure, and characterization. She will show how remote sensing data and techniques address the needs of various ecological applications for ecosystem services. She will discuss leaf area index measurement and light detection and ranging (LiDAR). Finally, she will present several examples of LiDAR research at the UW College of Forest Resources' Precision Forestry Cooperative.

Measurement and modeling of the forest carbon resource in the Nothofagus forests of Tierra del Fuego, Chile Swanson, Mark Ellyson (2007)This research quantifies the carbon stored in Nothofagus-dominated forests of Tierra del Fuego, Chile, and investigates a number of factors that influence the amount of carbon stored in these forest ecosystems. An intensive ...
Influence of forest-clearcut edges on fungal fruiting, litter decomposition and seedling growth in low elevation second-growth conifer forests in Western Washington Sparks, Grace Beehler (2003)Extensive timber harvesting in the Pacific Northwest has resulted in forest landscapes that include numerous edges, where patches of older forests are bounded by more open areas. Mature second-growth Douglas-fir/western ...
Effects of timber harvest and forest edges on abundance, viability, and physiology of understory plants in Pseudotsuga forests of western Washington Nelson, Cara Ritchie (2004)There is widespread interest in the ecological effects of timber harvest, the resultant fragmentation of forest habitat, and the increased area of forest edges. However, there has been surprisingly little research devoted ...
