  • Drivers of the US CO2 emissions 1997–2013 

    Feng, Kuishuang; Davis, Steven J.; Sun, Laixiang; Hubacek, Klaus (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-07-21)
    Fossil fuel CO2 emissions in the United States decreased by ~11% between 2007 and 2013, from 6,023 to 5,377 Mt. This decline has been widely attributed to a shift from the use of coal to natural gas in US electricity ...
  • Characterizing leaf area index (LAI) and vertical foliage profile (VFP) over the United States 

    Tang, H.; Ganguly, S.; Zhang, G.; Hofton, M. A.; Nelson, R. F.; Dubayah, R. (Copernicus Publications, 2016)
    Leaf area index (LAI) and vertical foliage profile (VFP) are among the important canopy structural variables. Recent advances in lidar remote sensing technology have demonstrated the capability of accurately mapping LAI ...
  • Sensitivity of Multi-Source SAR Backscatter to Changes in Forest Aboveground Biomass 

    Huang, Wenli; Sun, Guoqing; Ni, Wenjian; Zhang, Zhiyu; Dubayah, Ralph (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2015-07-28)
    Accurate estimates of forest aboveground biomass (AGB) after anthropogenic disturbance could reduce uncertainties in the carbon budget of terrestrial ecosystems and provide critical information to policy makers. Yet, the ...
  • Land Surface Albedo Estimation from Chinese HJ Satellite Data Based on the Direct Estimation Approach 

    He, Tao; Liang, Shunlin; Wang, Dongdong; Chen, Xiaona; Song, Dan-Xia; Jiang, Bo (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2015-05-04)
    Monitoring surface albedo at medium-to-fine resolution (<100 m) has become increasingly important for medium-to-fine scale applications and coarse-resolution data evaluation. This paper presents a method for estimating ...
  • Annual Carbon Emissions from Deforestation in the Amazon Basin between 2000 and 2010 

    Song, Xiao-Peng; Huang, Chengquan; Saatchi, Sassan S.; Hansen, Matthew C.; Townshend, John R. (PLOS (Public Library of Science), 2015-05-07)
    Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) is considered one of the most cost-effective strategies for mitigating climate change. However, historical deforestation and emission rates―critical ...
