Linking Phenological Indices from Digital Cameras in Idaho and Montana to MODIS NDVI

Joseph St. Peter, John Hogland, Mark Hebblewhite, Mark Hurley, Nicole Hupp, Kelly Proffitt
2018 Remote Sensing  
This study links greenness indices derived from digital images in a network of rangeland and forested sites in Montana and Idaho to 16-day normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) from NASA's Moderate  ...  Digital camera phenology indices were averaged across cameras on a site to derive phenological curves.  ...  Acknowledgments: We would like to thank E. Brandell, A. Bernhisel, D. Eacker, S. Bergen, S. Christensen, N Bilodeau, J. Shallow, and T.  ...

Comparative Quality and Trend of Remotely Sensed Phenology and Productivity Metrics across the Western United States

Ethan E. Berman, Tabitha A. Graves, Nate L. Mikle, Jerod A. Merkle, Aaron N. Johnston, Geneva W. Chong
2020 Remote Sensing  
We compare metrics from 10 leading remote sensing datasets against a network of PhenoCam near-surface cameras throughout the western United States from 2002 to 2014.  ...  Phenology metrics had higher agreement than productivity metrics, aside from a few datasets in deciduous forests.  ...  [32] used in situ first leaf observations to validate SOS from various LSP datasets and found high root mean squared error (~20 days), indicating a need to better understand the link between biological  ...

Remote sensing techniques to assess active fire characteristics and post-fire effects

Leigh B. Lentile, Zachary A. Holden, Alistair M. S. Smith, Michael J. Falkowski, Andrew T. Hudak, Penelope Morgan, Sarah A. Lewis, Paul E. Gessler, Nate C. Benson
2006 International journal of wildland fire  
The objective of the present paper is to provide a comprehensive review of current and potential remote sensing methods used to assess fire behavior and effects and ecological responses to fire.  ...  Confusion about fire intensity, fire severity, burn severity, and related terms can result in the potential misuse of the inferred information by land managers and remote sensing practitioners who require  ...  FRP data from MODIS were recently used to compare energy radiated from boreal forest fires in Russia and in North America .  ...

Remote sensing of forest pest damage: a review and lessons learned from a Canadian perspective

R.J. Hall, G. Castilla, J.C. White, B.J. Cooke, R.S. Skakun
2016 Canadian Entomologist  
This review provides a brief introduction to major forest insect pests in Canada (two bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and six defoliators) and the damage they cause, a synthesis of the literature  ...  We offer some lessons learned, outline roles that remote sensing could serve in a management context, and discuss what ongoing and upcoming technological advances may offer to future forest health monitoring  ...  Contributors to that project included Sylvia Thomas (co-principal investigator with R. Hall), Joost van der Sanden, Alice Deschamps, Robert Landry, and Lori White from CCRS.  ...

Requirements of a habitat specialist in Swiss mountain forests – an assessment of forest structure and composition using laser remote sensing and field data

Florian Zellweger, Felix Morsdorf, Veronika Braunisch, Kurt Bollmann
2012
Apart from indicating structurally rich forest stands, it probably also served as a proxy of compositional aspects such as the abundance of light demanding resource trees and shrubs or of a well developed  ...  To study the habitat requirements of hazel grouse (Bonasa bonasia), an indicator species of structurally rich forest stands, we assessed the structure and composition of Swiss mountain forests over three  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to the NERC Airborne Research & Survey Facility for the acquisition of the LiDAR data used in this study, and to Dr Peter Bunting (Aberystwyth University) and Dr John Armstron  ...
