We developed an empirical model to estimate aboveground carbon density with variables derived from airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) in tropical seasonal forests in Cambodia, and assessed the effects of LiDAR pulse density on the accurate estimation of aboveground carbon density. First, we tested the applicability of variables used for estimating(More)
We investigated the capabilities of a canopy height model (CHM) derived from aerial photographs using the Structure from Motion (SfM) approach to estimate aboveground biomass (AGB) in a tropical forest. Aerial photographs and airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data were simultaneously acquired under leaf-on canopy conditions. A 3D point cloud was(More)
Populus euphratica Oliv. is a main tree species that forms natural riparian forests in arid and semi-arid areas from Morocco to the Ordos Plateau. This study is designed to clarify the forest structure and dynamics of P. euphratica and to elucidate the ecological mechanisms sustaining riparian forests under unreliable environmental conditions. This study(More)
