This paper assesses the ability of bare-ground LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data to resolve surface features in Devils Lake Basin, North Dakota–a region characterized by thousands of shallow, water-filled depressions. It used data from the National Wetland Inventory (NWI) and Landsat to validate wetland identification and to calculate sink depth/area.
