FIA 2022 – The FIA Science Stakeholder Meeting

We invite you to join us for the 2022 FIA Science Stakeholder Meeting (FIA 2022) to be held November 15th-17th, 2022 in Minneapolis/St. Paul (tentatively). At least a portion of the meeting will be offered virtually, and the final decision about in-person attendance is still under consideration.
The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program is the only comprehensive inventory of the Nation's forests and the sole source of strategic-level inventory and trend monitoring for the National Forest System, providing critical information to a range of scientific and industrial partners. This meeting draws a world-class group of partners, practitioners, and scientists with regional, national, and international inventory and monitoring missions. Maintaining the Forest Service's leadership in this area requires regular consultation with FIA's users, as well as periodic technical exchange among scientists in fields such as data visualization, statistical inference, and remote sensing inventory techniques.
FIA 2022 is hosted by the USDA Forest Service, Northern Research Station, FIA program and National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI). Specifically, we invite presentations that help advance the goals of:
• Maximizing the value of the “annual” sample design both spatially and temporally
• Advancing the development of delivery tools to meet client needs and take advantage of ever-expanding options for data visualization and communication
• Assuring data continuity that supports a variety of land manager needs
• Integrating more powerful and efficient monitoring technologies and statistical techniques into established analysis lines; and,
• Supporting FIA’s expansion in areas such as enhanced timber product monitoring, improved carbon/biomass estimates, enhanced ownership study, land cover/use research, urban forest inventory, monitoring of Interior AK, and small area estimation.
