FIA conducts inventories in three phases. Phase 1 uses remotely sensed data to obtain initial plot landcover observations and to stratify land area in the population of interest to increase the precision of estimates. In Phase 2, field crews visit the physical locations of permanent field plots to measure traditional inventory variables such as tree species, diameter, and height. In Phase 3, field crews visit a subset of Phase 2 plots to obtain measurements for an additional suite of variables associated with forest and ecosystem health. The three phases of the enhanced FIA program as implemented in this inventory are discussed in greater detail in the sections that follow.show more
