Yale in the Boreal

Yale affiliates currently working on projects in the Boreal  include….

Jill Kelly PhD ‘18: Works with Professor Tim Gregoire and Peter Umunay (F&ES PhD ‘19), using statistics to compute estimates of forest biomass from height measurements taken by airborne LiDAR. Jill’s current project explores the influence of spatial aggregation on biomass estimates for a forest in southern Norway. She also researches problems of scale and change-of-support that might arise when combining LiDAR point clouds with other remotely sensed data. This is the page of their collaborators in Norway.
