Measuring Forests in 3D Provides Greater Accuracy

Measuring forests in the U.S. with 3D laser scanning indicates they may have significantly more carbon than previously thought. In a recent article by A.E.L. Stovall in Science Trends he reports that terrestrial laser scanning is providing more accurate estimates of tree biomass. A new method found 25% more carbon in trees than the traditional approach The good news is […]
