Title: Spatial Prediction of Forest Soil Carbon: Spatial Modeling and Geostatistical Approaches
Author: Anderson, Eric Scott
Advisors: Jim Thompson, Committee Co-Chair
Abstract: Understanding the carbon cycle is one of the most difficult challenges facing scientists studying the global environment.A series of studies were undertaken to explore a number of current issues that contribute to our inability to model SOC on a regional or landscape scale. Investigation into the spatial distribution of SOC occurred on a 32,500 ha forest ecosystem located entirely within the bounds of Hofmann Forest. LiDAR evaluations indicated that data reduction was possible while still maintaining DEM quality. Spatial modeling efforts proved troublesome for flat landscapes.
