The forest inventory and monitoring research group (SkogRover) at the Department of Ecology and Natural resource management (INA) at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) develop methods to increase our knowledge of forests and forest related resources.
In a project founded by the Norwegian Environment Agency we have exemplified how remote sensing can be used in the management of non-native species.
- Can we discriminating between Native Norway Spruce and Invasive Sitka Spruce?
- Use of remote sensing for mapping of non-native conifer species
- Accuracy of forest stand estimates
- Developing methods for biomass and carbon assessment for miombo woodlands, pine plantations and agroforestry fields in Malawi
- Use of 3D-data from image matching in forest standwise inventories
- Estimating Forest and Shrub Aboveground Dry Biomass in the Tanana Valley, Alaska using Ground Plots and Airborne Lidar Data
- Estimation of biomass in tropical rainforest using airborne laser scanning
- Methods for estimating volume, biomass and tree species diversity using field inventory and airborne laser scanning in the tropical forests of Tanzania
