A helicopter-borne eight-channel ranging scatterometer for remote sensing. II. Forest inventory

Forest inventory methods based on data acquired with an airborne ranging radar are discussed. The approach can be used to partly automate present labor-dominated forest inventory methods. Using these methods, the mean and dominant tree height can be measured with a standard deviation of 1 m. The stem volume per hectare can be estimated with a relative accuracy of 15% by effectively counting the height distribution of the trees and by calculating the center of backscattered power from the forest… CONTINUE READING
