PROJECT DESCRIPTION

(2011-05-01 - Current) I am interested in ground-truthing a 25 year forest health trend model developed from remotely sensed data. My proposed project involves recording topographic, soil, and stand characteristics to look for drivers of health and decline trends. I also hope to use dendrochronological analysis to compare metrics of actual tree growth against metrics of forest condition predicted by the model.
