Estimating aboveground carbon using airborne LiDAR in Cambodian tropical seasonal forests for REDD+ implementation

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… CONTINUE READING
