About this Event
Topics in forest measurements, forest modeling, forest inventory, remote sensing applications in forestry, and quantitative forest management are welcome. The meeting will include a special session focused on projects which aim to explore and expand upon the uses of the data produced by the USDA Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program. For example, we welcome presentations on:
  • Small area estimation
  • Sampling and survey non-response
  • Volume, biomass and carbon modelling
  • Harvesting and wood flow
  • Ecosystem services and non-timber forest products
We are open to not only research work but also projects in forest practice. Students who have preliminary results are encouraged to present. Only oral presentations will be given this year. Submit your abstract via the link (https://forms.office.com/r/2t09tiD0c0), no later than September 8th, 2023 (EST).
