Current convention in establishing compartment level timber volume utilises a system of sample plot measurements of tree height, diameter at breast height, basal area, and other contextual information. Applying standard allometric equations these sample plot values are extrapolated to produce estimates of timber volume per compartment. The cost of conventional compartment enumeration limits the frequency and intensity of plantation wide estimates of timber volume and therefore the potential to…

Synergetic use of multi-temporal ALOS PALSAR and ENVISAT ASAR data for topographic/land cover mapping and monitoring at national scale in Africa
TLDR
Results clearly show that the synergetic use of Synthetic Aperture Radar data enables the reliable identification of key land cover types and their evolution over time, providing basic information on the land cover status.
