Dr. Wolter is interested in using airborne lidar data to calibrate satellite-based forest structure estimation models that currently rely on ground-based measurement data. The aim is to be able to accurately and efficiently monitor forest biophysical parameters using readily available data sources, and provide a framework for semi-automated, periodic updates to track forest structural changes and associated impacts on ecosystem biodiversity.
