Title: Integrating forest inventory and analysis data into a LIDAR-based carbon monitoring system

Author: Johnson, Kristofer D.; Birdsey, Richard; O Finley, Andrew; Swantaran, Anu; Dubayah, Ralph; Wayson, Craig; Riemann, Rachel.

Date: 2014

Source: Carbon Balance and Management. 9(3): 3.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data may be a valuable component of a LIDAR-based carbon monitoring system, but integration of the two observation systems is not without challenges. To explore integration methods, two wall-to-wall LIDAR-derived biomass maps were compared to FIA data at both the plot and county levels in Anne Arundel and Howard Counties in Maryland. Allometric model-related errors were also considered.

Keywords: Aboveground biomass, Carbon, Inter-comparison, LIDAR, Forest inventory and analysis
