Use of Remotely Sensed Data for Assessing Forest Stand Conditions in the Eastern United States

  title={Use of Remotely Sensed Data for Assessing Forest Stand Conditions in the Eastern United States},
  author={Darrel L. Williams and Ross F. Nelson},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
The results of three interrelated research activities conducted by Goddard scientists in support of the AgRISTARS Renewable Resources Inventory (RRI) project are summarized. The central theme of the research conducted at Goddard was the development of techniques for the detection, classification, and measurement of forest disturbances using digital, remotely sensed data. Three study areas located in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Maine were investigated with respect to: a) the delineation… CONTINUE READING
