Researchers use lasers to measure local redwoods’ carbon storage

Optimizing Quantitative Structure Model (QSMs) parameters for Coastal Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) for accurate aboveground biomass estimates


Alexander Barajas-Ritchie and Lisa Patrick Bentley, PhD, of Sonoma State University have shown that 3D models generated from light detecting and ranging (LiDAR) technology may work at providing accurate estimates for local redwood trees in Northern California.
