Yellowstone National Park Report
In 1988, we developed an algorithm to predict green herbaceous biomass in sagebrush grassland communities of elk summer range using Landsat multi-spectral scanner (MSS) data (Merrill et al. 1988). Our objectives during this contract period were (1) to improve this predictive model and (2) to use the model for predicting vegetation recovery on grasslands burned in 1988.
