The Impact of Water Content on Sources of Heterotrophic Soil Respiration
Heterotrophic respiration (R<sub>H</sub>) is a major flux of CO<sub>2</sub> from forest ecosystems and represents a large source of uncertainty in estimating net ecosystem productivity (NEP) using regional soil respiration ...

Identifying Irrigated Areas in the Snake River Plain, Idaho: Evaluating Performance across Composting Algorithms, Spectral Indices, and Sensors
There are pressing concerns about the interplay between agricultural productivity, water demand, and water availability in semi-arid to arid regions of the world. Currently, irrigated agriculture is the dominant water user ...
Creating Landscape-Scale Site Index Maps for the Southeastern US Is Possible with Airborne LiDAR and Landsat Imagery
Sustainable forest management is hugely dependent on high-quality estimates of forest site productivity, but it is challenging to generate productivity maps over large areas. We present a method for generating site index ...
Occupational Safety and Health Concerns in Logging: A Cross-Sectional Assessment in Virginia
Increased logging mechanization has helped improve logging safety and health, yet related safety risks and concerns are not well understood. A cross-sectional study was completed among Virginia loggers. Participants (<i>n ...
Characteristics of Logging Businesses across Virginia’s Diverse Physiographic Regions
Logging businesses play an important role in implementing forest management plans and delivering the raw material needed by forest products mills. Understanding the characteristics of the logging workforce can help forest ...
Effectiveness of a confinement strategy for reducing campsite impacts in Shenandoah National Park
(Cambridge University Press, 2004-12)
The expansion and proliferation of backcountry campsites is a persistent problem in many parks and protected areas. Shenandoah National Park (SNP) has one of the highest backcountry overnight use densities in the USA ...
Edyn: Dynamic Signaling of Changes to Forests Using Exponentially Weighted Moving Average Charts
Remote detection of forest disturbance remains a key area of interest for scientists and land managers. Subtle disturbances such as drought, disease, insect activity, and thinning harvests have a significant impact on ...
Landsat 8 Based Leaf Area Index Estimation in Loblolly Pine Plantations
Leaf area index (LAI) is an important biophysical parameter used to monitor, model, and manage loblolly pine plantations across the southeastern United States. Landsat provides forest scientists and managers the ability ...
Scaling participation in payments for ecosystem services programs
Payments for ecosystem services programs have become common tools but most have failed to achieve wide-ranging conservation outcomes. The capacity for scale and impact increases when PES programs are designed through the ...
