Abstract

    Remote sensing can provide a relatively low-cost approach to large scale assessment of forest productivity but the connection between remote sensing products and scalable field metrics is not well understood. Much of the existing research has focused on homogeneous, single species forests, with limited remote sensing inputs for model calibration or field data to assess accuracy of productivity predictions. Here we develop and evaluate yearly basal area increment models for common species across the northeastern US. Applying these models across the landscape highlights spatial and temporal variability in forest growth patterns.

    • Title: Ancillary Data
    • Start Date: 2000-01-01
    • End Date: 2012-12-31
    • Description: The Remote Sensing Phenology (RSP) collection is a set of nine annual phenological metrics for the conterminous United States. Researchers at the USGS EROS Center utilize data gathered by satellite sensors to track seasonal changes in vegetation. The satellite sensors that provide the raw data are the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) carried aboard National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Terra and Aqua satellites. The satellite data are initially transformed into Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) values. eMODIS NDVI provide the foundation for the phenology metrics. Time-series NDVI can be summarized and analyzed to produce nine key phenological indicators. These data represent a powerful tool for documenting plant life-cycle trends and detecting the impacts of climate change on ecosystems.

    • Purpose: The goal of this project is to provide USGS and other researchers with complete and consistent public domain information on the vegetation phenology across the conterminous U.S.
