Abstract or Summary
  • Knowledge of the timber production potential of a wildland area plays an important role in its wise management. For the past several years, resource managers of the United States Forest Service (USFS) at the Plumas National Forest have been concerned with the establishment of a procedure to evaluate timber production potential of the northeastern Sierra Nevada. A lack of critical detailed data on topography, soil type, soil plant available water, solar insolation and potential evapotranspiration has limited the success of silviculturalists in defining timber production potential and selecting forest regeneration sites in the area. Airborne and spaceborne remotely sensed data combined with ground acquired data can provide the type of information required for the assessment of timber production potential of such a wildland area. This study uses remotely sensed data as a part of a scheme for the development of a data base and model to aid forest managers in evaluating areas in terms of timber production potential.
