Estimating canopy height and site productivity of deciduous forests at a regional scale with leaf off, low density LiDAR
Date(s) 10/21/2013 - 4:00 p.m.
Location Donahue Auditorium, Gordon Science Center
Presenter Kristen Brubaker, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Description LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is increasingly being used to improve our understanding of forested ecosystems on a broad spatial scale. Using freely available low density, leaf off LiDAR and software, Brubaker and her colleagues established methodology to create an accurate state-wide tree height model for State Forests in Pennsylvania.
