GEDI LAI

How do I extract the leaf area index from GEDI L2B data? I have tried adding the lai variable in the gedi python code but when I run this code as per the instruction, there is no lai in the variable selected. Please see the screenshot below:

A quick feedback is appreciated as this is school assignment and working under deadline.

Hello,
Unfortunately, LAI is not a layer in the GEDI L2B dataset. The most similar (but not interchangeable) layer would be the plant area index (PAI). You can view the dataset layers in the GEDI L2B Data Dictionary:
