    Description

    An assessment of the vegetation resources of southwest Alaska was made by using an inventory design developed by the Pacific Northwest Research Station. Satellite imagery (LANDSAT MSS), high-altitude aerial photography, and ground sampling were the major components of the design. Estimates of area for all land cover classes in the southwest region were produced. Additionally, more intensive sampling provided data for estimation of timber resources in the forest land component. Field data collection was conducted from 1991 to 1994, and data compilation progressed through 1995.
