REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) constitutes a set of financial incentives designed to reduce CO2 emissions from forest degradation and deforestation. REDD success depends on measuring forest biomass as a proxy for CO2 stocks. We tested the efficacy of airborne Xand P-band interferometry as a remote-sensing method to quantify forest biomass and detect changes in forest structure in the Paragominas region, eastern Amazon. With field-classified regions of… CONTINUE READING
