Scanning lidar remote sensing systems have recently and leaf area index (LAI) over a wide range, up to 1200 become available for use in ecological applications. UnMg ha21 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 distribution of vegetation were able to make accurate estimates of other stand material along the vertical axis and can be used to prostructure… CONTINUE READING
