Mapping tropical forest biomass with radar and spaceborne LiDAR in Lope National Park, Gabon: Overcoming problems of high biomass and persistent cloud
Spatially-explicit maps of aboveground biomass are essential for calculating the losses and gains in forest carbon at a regional to national level. The production of such maps across wide areas will become increasingly necessary as international efforts to protect primary forests, such as the REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) mechanism, come into effect, alongside their use for management and research more generally. However, mapping biomass over high-biomass...[Show more]
