His most cited work include:

  • Estimation of LAI and fractional cover from small footprint airborne laser scanning data based on gap fraction (343 citations)
  • LIDAR-based geometric reconstruction of boreal type forest stands at single tree level for forest and wildland fire management (305 citations)
  • An International Comparison of Individual Tree Detection and Extraction Using Airborne Laser Scanning (302 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Felix Morsdorf mainly investigates Remote sensing, Laser scanning, Lidar, Canopy and Tree canopy. His studies deal with areas such as Vegetation, Radiative transfer, Leaf area index and Imaging spectrometer as well as Remote sensing. His Laser scanning research integrates issues from Tree, Point cloud and Digital elevation model.

His Lidar study deals with Terrain intersecting with Stratification. In his research, Backscatter is intimately related to Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, which falls under the overarching field of Canopy. His Tree canopy research includes elements of Mixture model, Hemispherical photography, Characterization and Sampling.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Remote sensing (81.65%)
  • Laser scanning (33.03%)
  • Lidar (34.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Remote sensing (81.65%)
  • Laser scanning (33.03%)
  • Tree canopy (22.02%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Felix Morsdorf mostly deals with Remote sensing, Laser scanning, Tree canopy, Tree and Atmospheric radiative transfer codes. Remote sensing is represented through his Lidar and Imaging spectroscopy research. His work in Laser scanning covers topics such as Point cloud which are related to areas like Terrestrial laser scanning, Radiative transfer, Laser and Ground truth.

His Tree canopy study incorporates themes from Species evenness and Leaf area index. His work focuses on many connections between Tree and other disciplines, such as Atmospheric sciences, that overlap with his field of interest in Extinction. Felix Morsdorf interconnects Sampling, Temperate rainforest and Forest ecology in the investigation of issues within Canopy.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mapping functional diversity from remotely sensed morphological and physiological forest traits. (100 citations)
  • Quantification of hidden canopy volume of airborne laser scanning data using a voxel traversal algorithm (50 citations)
  • Remote sensing of plant-water relations: An overview and future perspectives (33 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Ecology
  • Artificial intelligence

His primary areas of study are Remote sensing, Canopy, Lidar, Tree canopy and Laser scanning. His Remote sensing study combines topics in areas such as Atmospheric radiative transfer codes, Carbon cycle and Water cycle. In the field of Canopy, his study on Understory overlaps with subjects such as Occlusion.

The concepts of his Lidar study are interwoven with issues in Vegetation, Voxel, Leaf area index and Algorithm. His Laser scanning research incorporates elements of Ray tracing, Point cloud and Data mining.
