Project Description

Robert’s project centers around internalizing wetland carbon offsets into the agricultural economy of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. To accomplish this they combine various remote sensing data with flux data and footprint estimates to improve landscape-scale estimation of photosynthesis and respiration. The first chapter of their dissertation will use multispectral LiDAR to identify and quantify dead and live biomass within the wetland canopy.
