Mapping aboveground biomass annually across the northwestern USA from lidar and Landsat image time series

Projects Posted on: August 18, 2016
The cumulative area of LiDAR collections across multiple ownerships in the northwestern United States has reached the point that land managers of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and other stakeholders would greatly benefit from a strategy for how to utilize LiDAR for regional aboveground biomass inventory. The need for Carbon Monitoring Systems (CMS) can be more robustly addressed by using not only available NASA satellite data products, but also commercial airborne LiDAR data collections.
