Abstract

Our aim is to inform the AmeriFlux community on existing and upcoming LiDAR technologies (atmospheric Doppler
or Raman LiDAR often deployed at flux sites are not considered here), how it is currently used at flux sites, and how
we believe it could, in the future, further contribute to the AmeriFlux vision. Heterogeneity in vegetation and ground
properties at various spatial scales is omnipresent at flux sites, and 3D mapping of canopy, understory, and ground
surface can help move the science forward.
