Lidar Remote Sensing for Ecosystem Studies
Articles R emote sensing has facilitated extraordinary advances in the modeling, mapping, and understanding of ecosystems. Typical applications of remote sensing involve either images from passiveExpand
Detecting trends in forest disturbance and recovery using yearly Landsat time series: 1. LandTrendr — Temporal segmentation algorithms
We introduce and test LandTrendr (Landsat-based detection of Trends in Disturbance and Recovery), a new approach to extract spectral trajectories of land surface change from yearly Landsat time-series stacks (LTS). Expand
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
Landsat-8: Science and Product Vision for Terrestrial Global Change Research
Abstract Landsat 8, a NASA and USGS collaboration, acquires global moderate-resolution measurements of the Earth's terrestrial and polar regions in the visible, near-infrared, short wave, and thermalExpand
Surface lidar remote sensing of basal area and biomass in deciduous forests of eastern Maryland, USA
A method of predicting two forest stand structure attributes, basal area and aboveground biomass, from measurements of forest vertical structure was developed and tested using field and remotelyExpand
Landsat's Role in Ecological Applications of Remote Sensing
Abstract Remote sensing, geographic information systems, and modeling have combined to produce a virtual explosion of growth in ecological investigations and applications that are explicitly spatialExpand
Estimates of forest canopy height and aboveground biomass using ICESat
Exchange of carbon between forests and the atmosphere is a vital component of the global carbon cycle. Satellite laser altimetry has a unique capability for estimating forest canopy height, which hasExpand
Comparison of Tasseled Cap-based Landsat data structures for use in forest disturbance detection
Landsat satellite data has become ubiquitous in regional-scale forest disturbance detection. The Tasseled Cap (TC) transformation for Landsat data has been used in several disturbance-mappingExpand
Evaluation of MODIS NPP and GPP products across multiple biomes.
Estimates of daily gross primary production (GPP) and annual net primary production (NPP) at the 1 km spatial resolution are now produced operationally for the global terrestrial surface usingExpand
Relationships between leaf area index and Landsat TM spectral vegetation indices across three temperate zone sites
Abstract Mapping and monitoring of leaf area index (LAI) is important for spatially distributed modeling of vegetation productivity, evapotranspiration, and surface energy balance. Global LAIExpand
