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.
