Lidar sampling — Using an airborne profiler to estimate forest biomass in Hedmark County, Norway

In a study published in Remote Sensing of Environment an airborne profiling lidar was used to estimate total aboveground dry biomass, a surrogate for aboveground carbon stocks, for all land cover types in Hedmark County, Norway. Continue reading

Single tree detection in heterogeneous boreal forests using airborne laser scanning and area-based stem number estimates

A investigation of adaptive single tree detection methods using airborne laser scanning (ALS) data are published in International Journal of Remote Sensing (IJRS). Continue reading

Measuring biomass in Tanzanian rainforest – Fieldwork

Deforestation and forest degradation is identified as one of the most important sources of anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere. At the same time forests are capable of offsetting large amounts of carbon, and better forest management is one of the solutions to the worlds climate problem. Continue reading
