Single Tree Detection from Airborne Laser Scanning Data: A Stochastic Approach
Characterizing and monitoring forests are of great scientific and managerial interests, such as understanding the global carbon circle, biodiversity conservation and management of natural resources. As an alternative or ...
Characterizing the Dielectric Properties of Geologic and Asteroid Regolith Analogue Material for Improved Planetary Radar Interpretation
Planetary radar has provided an increasingly growing number of datasets on the inner terrestrial planets and near-Earth and main-belt asteroid populations in our solar system. Physical interpretation of radar data for ...
Individual Tree Crown Delineation Using Multispectral LiDAR Data
In this study, an improved treetop detection and a region-based segmentation algorithm were developed to delineate Individual Tree Crowns (ITCs) using multispectral Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data. The dataset ...
Investigating the Capability of a New Surface-Based EM Instrument, the Sea Ice Sensor (SIS), to Measure Sea Ice Thickness
Sea ice thickness measurement is an important parameter in climate system models, safety and efficiency of offshore operations and maritime navigation. Electromagnetic (EM) induction instruments are commonly used to measure ...
Evaluation and Application of Max-DOAS Methods for Monitoring Aerosols, NO2, and SO2 in Urban and Industrial Environments
The ideal measurement technique to effectively address an air quality problem depends on the chemical and physical properties of the species and its environment. Multi-Axis Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy ...
Development and Improvement of Spectroscopic Techniques for Atmospheric Composition Measurements from Ground and Space
Investigating the role of the atmosphere in climate change requires a large body of observations and measurements of atmospheric composition. This requires the development of observational techniques and instrumentation, ...
