Summary
Abstract: The La Selva Biological Research Station contains over 1500 hectares of tropical wet forest in the Atlantic lowlands of Costa Rica, and has been extensively surveyed for ecological, hydrological, and topographical purposes. In March of 1998, the Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor (LVIS), an airborne laser altimeter designed and developed at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, was used to map the ... View entire text
