Airborne remote sensing instrumentation for NEON: Status and development

Airborne remote sensing plays a crucial role in the scaling strategy underpinning the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) design.12 Airborne spectroscopy will quantify plant species type and function, and waveform LiDAR will quantify vegetation structure and heterogeneity at the scale of individual shrubs and larger plants over hundreds of square… CONTINUE READING
