Remote Sensing of Biomass: Principles and Applications
Published: 29 October 2012 by MDPI in The 2nd World Sustainability Forum session Remote Sensing for Sustainable Management of Land and Biodiversity, Sustainable Agriculture
Abstract: Remote sensing is an important tool in determining the area and type of above-ground land-based biomass. Such information is required to compare supply and demand, determine the rate of deforestation and its causes, assess the store of carbon in biomass and the potential for increasing the store and use etc. The various types and uses of remote sensing are detailed together with their limitations, costs and benefits.
Keywords: Remote sensing methods; mapping ground truthing
