A portion of the quicklook image from flight line ang20150611t202652 over Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed, Idaho on June 6, 2015. Center-pivot irrigation of agricultural land (1/2 mile in diameter) is visible in this image. Flight altitude was approximately 3000 m with clear weather.
A new dataset provides surface reflectance measured in 2014 & 2015 at long-term research sites in Idaho and California, USA.
Location of the Tapajos National Forest, PA, Brazil, outlined in yellow. The gray lines are GLAS sampling flight tracks from 2003 to 2009 and the blue circles are the forest plots sampled. The pictures on the right illustrate three of the stands where plots were located (Goncalves et al., 2017).
Forest inventory data from the Tapajos National Forest in Brazil were used to calibrate GLAS LiDAR estimates of forest biomass.
Typical plot photo for ground cover estimates and location of LAI measurements. A rangepole with GPS and a camera boom was positioned at 2-meter intervals along plot transects. This photo is from the Hollister, Sagebrush01 plot, and the Sagebrush01_5_4 sampling point.
New field data describes vegetation in southern Idaho in order to validate remotely-sensed data in the region.
