Tropical and Temperate Forest Phenology Revealed by Planet Imagery

Paper

A team of researchers led by Professor Jin Wu, at the University of Hong Kong, has been studying tropical and temperate forest phenology—the rhythms and periods of life. Aided by the high revisit rate of Dove satellites, Jing Wang and team detected dry season vegetation patterns in the Amazon: many tropical trees […]

Dove Imagery Used to Map Biomass in Coastal Wetlands

Paper

Coastal wetlands, especially salt marshes, store vast amounts of terrestrial carbon both above and belowground. Conserving and restoring them can help sequester such carbon, but sea-level rise and other anthropogenic threats risk liberating these long-term carbon stores to the atmosphere where they would contribute to climate change. Gwen Miller, a Ph.D. Student […]

Forest Biomass Monitoring with the RapidEye Constellation

Paper

When working with forest carbon stocks and emissions, it is notable that there is no strictly “true” data. In order to directly measure carbon in forests, one would need to cut the vegetation, dry it, weigh it, chip it up, and push it through a mass spectrometer. This being a self-defeating enterprise, […]

Mapping and Estimating Forest Area and Aboveground Biomass

Paper

Forest area and aboveground biomass estimates represent two fundamental parameters in forest resource assessments and for measurement, reporting, and verification under the United Nations REDD+ program. In research led by Erik Næsset, various remote sensing sources are comparatively analyzed to determine their precision in generating these estimates, aiming to improve upon the […]
