The hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA; Adelges tsugae) is an invasive insect infestation that is spreading into the forests of the northeastern United States, driven by the warmer winter temperatures associated  ...  GEDI waveforms were simulated using airborne lidar datasets from an HWA-infested forest plot at the Harvard Forest ForestGEO site in central Massachusetts.  ...  In particular, we thank Scott Luthcke at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center for providing the pre-launch simulated GEDI acquisition locations for the Harvard Forest region.  ...
