Biomass estimation using full-waveform TLS

BCAL is developing methods to estimate biomass of sagebrush and western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis var. occidentalis Hook) at the individual shrub/tree level. 3D point cloud data from a full-waveform terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) are used, along with data processing techniques for the biomass estimates. Sixteen … (Read More) Biomass estimation using full-waveform TLS

Lidar-derived carbon estimates in encroaching juniper woodlands

Woody encroachment into shrub steppe and grassland ecosystems is a global phenomenon. Juniper encroachment is one of the most prominent changes occurring in rangelands of western North America. The spatial extent of pinyon-juniper woodlands, the third most common vegetation type … (Read More) Lidar-derived carbon estimates in encroaching juniper woodlands
