A spatially explicit map of aboveground carbon stored in Mexico's forests was generated from empirical modeling on forest inventory and spaceborne optical and radar data. Between 2004 and 2007, the Mexican National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR) established a network of ~26,000 permanent inventory plots in the frame of their national inventory program, the(More)
Hyperspectral near-infrared scenes have been simulated to analyze the contributions of surface minerals, atmosphere and sensor noise on images of Mars. Modeling the remote sensing process creates a means for independent analysis of the influence of the environment and instruments on detection accuracy of the surface composition. The system models surface(More)
SUMMARY One of the goals of the North American Carbon Program (NACP) is to develop a quantitative scientific basis for regional-to continental-scale carbon accounting to reduce uncertainties about the carbon cycle component of the climate system. In support of this goal, the National Biomass and Carbon Dataset 2000 (NBCD 2000), a high-resolution,(More)
