Aboveground biomass (AGB) of terrestrial ecosystems is an important constraint of global change and productivity models and used to assess carbon stocks and thus the contribution of vegetated ecosystems to the global carbon cycle. Although an indispensable and important requirement for decision makers, coherent and accurate estimates of grassland and forest(More)
The main purpose of this study is comparison of the potential of the Landsat7 ETM+ data and SPOT5-HRG image for forest area mapping at the scale of 1:25000 in northern of Iran. A Landsat7-ETM+ image and SPOT5-HRG in Pan and XS modes, with the spatial resolution of 5 and 10 meters, were analyzed. The images were almost simultaneous. The investigation on the(More)
Spatial information of forest structural variables is crucial for sustainable forest management planning, forest monitoring, and the assessment of forest ecosystem productivity. We investigate a complex alpine forest ecosystem located in the Swiss National Park (SNP) and apply empirical models to retrieve the structural variables canopy closure, basal area,(More)
We outline an approach combining airborne laser scanning (ALS) and imaging spectroscopy (IS) to quantify and assess patterns of tree density (TD) and forest productivity (FP) in a protected heterogeneous alpine forest in the Swiss National Park (SNP). We use ALS data and a local maxima (LM) approach to predict TD, as well as IS data (Airborne Prism(More)
To evaluate the capability of IRS-P6 LISS-III data to be employed for monitoring the pollarding forest areas in Northern Zagros, some parts of pollarded forests located around Baneh city were selected as a case study area. The pollarding area was determined as the ground truth in a 3-year alternation period using a global positioning system (GPS).(More)
Adequate assessment and management of landscape patterns and processes need proper representation and quantification of gradients of ecosystem biochemical and structural properties. Discrete land cover mapping approaches represent landscapes as classified entities with “hard” boundaries. On the other hand, continuous field representations of(More)
