Follow-up to a recent analysis published by Somers and CAO team showing that gradients in tropical forest biodiversity can be mapped with airborne imaging spectroscopy.
A new way to map tropical forest canopy diversity from CAO will aid in developing future satellite missions
Greg Asner discusses how CAO’s technology and scientific approach produce unique maps of the biological composition of Earth’s ecosystems. CAO sensors can map the chemical, structure and biological diversity of forests and other types of vegetation. The maps produced by the CAO have been used to drive new conservation actions in the Amazon basin and other tropical regions.
Hydrological networks and microtopography organize tropical forest vegetation
