GREAT BASIN RESTORATION INITIATIVE REMOTE SENSING PROJECT

Restoration Remote Sensing

United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Research, Education & Economics Information System (REEIS)

Titre : GREAT BASIN RESTORATION INITIATIVE REMOTE SENSING PROJECT

Identification : 5362-13610-009-02R

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Jul 30, 2005 à Jul 29, 2010

Domaine : Protect Soil from Harmful Effects of Natural Elements ; Watershed Protection and Management ; Management and Control of Forest and Range Fires ; Desert and semidesert shrub land and shinnery ; Watersheds ;

Partenaire : AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH SERVICE BOISE,

Objectif  : The Agricultural Research Service would provide expertise and technical assistance in the application of remote sensing of vegetation in support of restoration, rehabilitation and range management applications.

Descriptif
NWRC, in cooperation with the University of Idaho and Utah State University, will contract a LiDAR remote sensing flight that will yield high resolution digital elevation and vegetation (juniper) canopy data for 8 research watersheds and selected transects in the South Mountain and Juniper Mountain area of southwestern Owyhee County, Idaho. Vegetation height, cover and canopy characteristics will be evaluated relative to ground truth measurements of vegetation using new data generated by NWRC and previous survey data obtained by the University of Idaho, Oregon State University and recent BLM remote sensing overflight
