Generalized hierarchical model-based estimation for aboveground biomass assessment using GEDI and Landsat data

Publications Posted on: September 14, 2019
Recent developments in remote sensing (RS) technology have made several sources of auxiliary data available to support forest inventories. Thus, a pertinent question is how different sources of RS data should be combined with field data to make inventories cost-efficient.

Model-assisted estimation of forest resources with generalized additive models

Publications Posted on: July 05, 2007
Multiphase surveys are often conducted in forest inventories, with the goal of estimating forested area and tree characteristics over large regions. This article describes how design-based estimation of such quantities, based on information gathered during ground visits of sampled plots, can be made more precise by incorporating auxiliary information available from remote sensing.
