Commercial small-footprint lidar remote sensing has become an established tool for the creation of digital terrain models [DTMS). Unfortunately, even after the application of lidar vegetation point removal algorithms, vertical DTM error is not uniform and varies according to land cover. This paper presents the results of the application of an adaptive lidar(More)

We used an ocean circulation model and regional coral reef data to simulate eight spawning events from(More)
