Biometrics Working Group

The Biometrics Working Group (BWG) is administered by NCASI. The BWG organizes meetings where knowledgeable forest biometricians from academia, government forestry agencies and industry discuss technical issues. Meeting topics are often related to the USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program; however, technical issues on carbon monitoring or sustainable forestry are also of interest.

Contact Dr. Stephen Prisley for more information about the BWG. Notes from past meetings are provided below.
