BACKGROUND LiDAR remote sensing is a rapidly evolving technology for quantifying a variety of forest attributes, including aboveground carbon (AGC). Pulse density influences the acquisition cost of LiDAR, and grid cell size influences AGC prediction using plot-based methods; however, little work has evaluated the effects of LiDAR pulse density and cell size(More)
The selection of stable metrics can generate reliable models between different data sets. The height metrics provide the greatest stability, specifically the higher percentiles and the mode. Height metrics transfer more predictive power than density metrics. In forestry, there is an increasing development of aerial laser scanning (ALS). The flight missions(More)

Neural Networks (NN) hold the potential for improving a variety of tasks in remote sensing and image processing. They represent a different approach to problems, as they do not rely on statistical relationships. Instead, neural networks adaptively estimate continuous functions from data without specifying mathematically how outputs depend on inputs. This(More)
