The U.S. has been providing national-scale estimates of forest carbon (C) stocks and stock change to meet United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) reporting requirements for years. Although these currently are provided as national estimates by pool and year to meet greenhouse gas monitoring requirements, there is growing need to(More)
The objective of this study was to use an ecosystem process model, Biome-BGC, to explore the effects of different harvest scenarios on major components of the carbon budget of 205,000 km of temperate forest in the Upper Midwest region of the U.S. We simulated seven harvest scenarios varying the (i) amount of harvest residue retained, (ii) total harvest(More)
0099-1112/12/7807–715/$3.00/0 © 2012 American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Abstract Tree canopy cover is a fundamental component of the landscape, and the amount of cover influences fire behavior, air pollution mitigation, and carbon storage. As such, efforts to empirically model percent tree canopy cover across the United States are a(More)
Proper use and monitoring of our land and environmental resources for quality of life and sustainable growth considerations require that timely and accurate data on land cover and land use be regularly available. Remote sensing is an appropriate tool and NOAA's 1-km AVHRR time series imagery has proven to be an invaluable input for regional level natural(More)
The forest inventory and analysis program of the forest service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, is developing a new generation of tools based on XML, designed as a service-oriented architecture, and written in Java using established open standards and toolkits. This effort is in response to the opportunity provided by Web services technologies to create an(More)
