GEDI is not designed for measurement of non-woody or near ground vegetation, where it may be difficult to separate the canopy and ground signals. In addition to canopy height of woody vegetation, GEDI provides estimates of canopy cover, Plant Area Index and their vertical profiles, and aboveground biomass density.
