Lidar Remote Sensing of the Canopy Structure and Biophysical Properties of Douglas-Fir Western Hemlock Forests
21 of biomass and an LAI of 12, with 90% and like conventional microwave and optical sensors, lidar 75% of variance explained, respectively. Furthermore, we sensors directly measure the distributionExpand
Predicting forest stand characteristics with airborne scanning lidar
Currently, commercial forestry applications of airborne scanning lidar are limited to geo-technical applications such as creation of digital terrain models for layout of roads or logging systems. WeExpand
POTENTIAL UPPER BOUNDS OF CARBON STORES IN FORESTS OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
Placing an upper bound to carbon (C) storage in forest ecosystems helps to constrain predictions on the amount of C that forest management strategies could sequester and the degree to which naturalExpand
Lidar remote sensing of above‐ground biomass in three biomes
Estimation of the amount of carbon stored in forests is a key challenge for understanding the global carbon cycle, one which remote sensing is expected to help address. However, estimation of carbonExpand
Geographic variability in lidar predictions of forest stand structure in the Pacific Northwest
Estimation of the amount of carbon stored in forests is a key challenge for understanding the global carbon cycle, one which remote sensing is expected to help address. However, carbon storage inExpand
Patterns of covariance between forest stand and canopy structure in the Pacific Northwest
In the past decade, lidar (light detection and ranging) has emerged as a powerful tool for remotely sensing forest canopy and stand structure, including the estimation of aboveground biomass andExpand
Flood Disturbance in a Forested Mountain Landscape Interactions of land use and floods
R ecent flooding in the Pacific Northwest vividly illustrates the complexity of watershed and ecosystem responses to floods, especially in steep forest landscapes. Flooding involves a sequence ofExpand
Trends in bole biomass accumulation, net primary production and tree mortality in Pseudotsuga menziesii forests of contrasting age.
Although it is generally accepted that the rate of accumulation of biomass declines as forests age, little is known about the relative contributions to this decline of changes in net primaryExpand
Development of old-growth structure and timber volume growth trends in maturing Douglas-fir stands
Abstract Interest in the contributions to biological diversity of old-growth forests has increased in many regions of the world. In the Pacific Northwest of the United States, concern for theExpand
Assessing alternative allometric algorithms for estimating leaf area of Douglas-fir trees and stands.
Allometric approaches based only on tree diameter at breast height (DBH) have been used to estimate leaf biomass and leaf area index (LAI) in coniferous forests. This approach has been suggested toExpand
