Abstract

Restoring degraded areas is an effective strategy to reestablish the environmental services provided by the forests including global warming mitigation by carbon sequestration. Restoring lands is especially important in the Atlantic Forest, a global hotspot in Brazil threatened by deforestation. To...

Abstract

Accurate estimates of canopy base height (CBH) and canopy bulk density (CBD) are critical inputs for many fire modeling and simulation programs. Commonly used LANDFIRE estimates of CBH and CBD are only available at 30 m resolution and have relatively low accuracy, and traditional field-based...
