Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last decade has seen the widespread adoption of lidar (Light Detection and Ranging)  in terrestrial Earth Observation remote sensing. Lidar datasets have been developed for applications in urban environments (buildings, bridges, highways, etc), for mining and geological applications, emergency management (landslides, floodplain mapping, hurricane damage assessment, etc), land cover change and global biogeochemical cycling (biomass, ecological impacts, etc), amongst others.

This special issue is open to all forms of terrestrial lidar research including, Ground scanners or Terrestrial Laser Scanners (TLS); aerial sensors including green-red (like EEARL) lidars used to map riparian areas and near-infrared lidars that characterize ground surfaces (so DEMs) and vegetation, and satellite based research or planned activities from sensors such as GLAS or DESDyni.

We encourage submissions that substantially improve algorithms to generate digital surface models such as for buildings, vegetation, ground surfaces, or stream channel morphology. Applications of these data and assessments of accuracy to help reduce uncertainties in global biogeochemical budgets are also encouraged.
