GEDI coverage beams (beams 0000, 0001, 0010, and 0011) were designed to penetrate canopies of up to 95% canopy cover under “average” conditions. For this reason, it is recommended to preference the GEDI full power beams in cases of dense vegetation.

What is the difference in the information obtained by full power laser and coverage laser, and is it possible to use only full power laser in dense forests?
