Project Outline

This study is a supporting study for "Estimation of above ground biomass and species richness" topic as part of Scientific Project B05 of the Collaborative Research Centre 990. The study will evaluate the suitability of remotely sensed data in determining forest structure and its biomass. The potential enhancement of biomass predictions by integrating existing satellite imagery and field inventory data collected from permanent plots in the natural forest will be evaluated. The study is expected to improve the non-destructive method of forest biomass estimation by using appropriate remotely sensed data and consider forest structure to deliver more precise and accurate forest biomass estimates.
