Accurate forest biomass estimation is essential for greenhouse gas inventories, terrestrial carbon accounting, and climate change modeling studies. Unfortunately, no universal and transferable technique has been developed so far to quantify biomass carbon sources and sinks over large areas because of the environmental, topographic, and biophysical complexity of forest ecosystems. Among the remote sensing techniques tested, the use of multisensors and the spatial as well as the spectral… CONTINUE READING
