Knowledge of forest biomass stocks and their development is important for implementing effective climate change mitigation measures. Remote sensing using airborne LiDAR can be used to measure vegetation structure at large scale. We present deep learning systems for predicting wood volume, above-ground biomass (AGB), and subsequently above-ground carbon stocks directly from airborne LiDAR point clouds. Specifically, we devise different neural network architectures for point cloud regression and… 

Above-Ground Biomass Prediction for Croplands at a Sub-Meter Resolution Using UAV-LiDAR and Machine Learning Methods

Current endeavors to enhance the accuracy of in situ above-ground biomass (AGB) prediction for croplands rely on close-range monitoring surveys that use unstaffed aerial vehicles (UAVs) and mounted

Remember to correct the bias when using deep learning for regression!

To adjust the bias of the machine learning model after training as a default postprocessing step, which solves the problem of systematic error accumulation in least-squares regression models.



Lidar remote sensing of above‐ground biomass in three biomes

Estimation of the amount of carbon stored in forests is a key challenge for understanding the global carbon cycle, one which remote sensing is expected to help address. However, estimation of carbon

A review of radar remote sensing for biomass estimation

Forest plays a vital role in regulating climate through carbon sequestration in its biomass. Biomass reflects the health and environmental conditions of a forest ecosystem. In context to the climate

Mapping tropical forest biomass with radar and spaceborne LiDAR in Lopé National Park, Gabon: Overcoming problems of high biomass and persistent cloud

Spatially-explicit maps of aboveground biomass are essential for calculating the losses and gains in forest carbon at a regional to national level. The production of such maps across wide areas will

High-resolution forest carbon stocks and emissions in the Amazon

Very high-resolution monitoring reduces uncertainty in carbon emissions for REDD programs while uncovering fundamental environmental controls on forest carbon storage and their interactions with land-use change.
