In this study a semi-empirical model that was originally developed for stem volume estimation is used for aboveground biomass (AGB) estimation. The semi-empirical model is based on the relative heights of first echo LiDAR point cloud data and assumes a linear relationship between AGB and canopy volume. However, the usage of point cloud data leads to a computationally demanding task when processing large point cloud datasets for the generation of area-wide AGB maps. In the presented study the…

Aboveground Biomass Changes in Tropical Montane Forest of Northern Borneo Estimated Using Spaceborne and Airborne Digital Elevation Data

TLDR
This study identified forestry land use, especially commercial logging, as the main driver for the AGB changes in the montane forest between 2000 and 2012.

VERTICAL VEGETATION STRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND HYDRAULIC ROUGHNESS DETERMINATION USING DENSE ALS POINT CLOUD DATA - A VOXEL BASED APPROACH

Abstract. In this contribution the complexity of the vertical vegetation structure, based on dense airborne laser scanning (ALS) point cloud data (25 echoes/m2 ), is analyzed to calculate vegetation

Estimation of Above Ground Biomass in a Tropical Mountain Forest in Southern Ecuador Using Airborne LiDAR Data

TLDR
The results confirmed that field plot measurements alone cannot capture completely the forest structure in TMF but in combination with high resolution LiDAR data, applying a classification at tree level, the AGB amount and its distribution in the entire catchment could be estimated adequately.
