Abstract
Within the context of a study to model the effects of land use on carbon storage in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States we are processing about 100 Landsat images. The image processing challenges within the study are numerous. To determine the utility of our proposed methods many of them are being tested on a 1.2 Mha area within the region. The major challenges include mapping of forest cover type and seral stage, radiometric and geometric rectification, and change detection. In this paper we present preliminary results.
