Phase A study "Development of Algorithms for Biomass Retrieval"

 

In this ESA funded study, we have investigated radiative transfer model simulations of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images over a virtual forest. This work tested the ability of P-band SAR to monitor temporal changes in forest biomass (forest growth and deforestation/degradation). The project informs the proposed BIOMASS mission concept that is under consideration in ESA.
