Monitoring and measuring (Project 1.1)

Project 1.1 asked the question: 'what have we got and what state is it in?'

The research aimed to deliver new techniques and technologies for evaluating soil and site characteristics, for remotely sensing forest health and condition and for carrying out stand inventory. This was done in three sub­project areas:

  • 1.1.1 Site evaluation
  • 1.1.2 Monitoring of forest condition with multi-spectral and hyper-spectral remote-sensing
  • 1.1.3 Improved forest inventory using high resolution airborne remote sensing

The leader of Project 1.1 was Dr Neil Sims (CSIRO).

Senior scientists in this project were Drs Neil McKenzie (CSIRO, Land and Water), Darius Culvenor (Ensis), Jon Osborn (University of Tasmania), Paul Feikema (University of Melbourne /Department of Sustainability and Environment), and Rob Musk (University of Tasmania).
