Improved Forest Biomass and Carbon Estimations Using Texture Measures from WorldView-2 Satellite Data

  title={Improved Forest Biomass and Carbon Estimations Using Texture Measures from WorldView-2 Satellite Data},
  author={Sandra Eckert},
  journal={Remote Sensing},
Accurate estimation of aboveground biomass and carbon stock has gained importance in the context of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol. In order to develop improved forest stratum–specific aboveground biomass and carbon estimation models for humid rainforest in northeast Madagascar, this study analyzed texture measures derived from WorldView-2 satellite data. A forest inventory was conducted to develop stratum-specific allometric equations… CONTINUE READING
