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 ...
Forests of the western Olympic Peninsula: understory plant species diversity, forest policy, and landscape pattern Tyler, Marnie W (2002)Forest management policies affect the spatial distribution of seral stages and the plant and animal species that are associated with them. Forest policies have historically been developed for a single ownership, with little ...
Landscape management system (LMS): background, methods, and computer tools for integrating forest inventory, GIS, growth and yield, visualization and analysis for sustaining multiple forest objectives McCarter, James B (2001)The increasing complexity of managing forests requires the use of new technologies to analyze the large amount of forest information. This dissertation presents a software system developed to integrate several computer ...
