Abstract

Earth observation techniques using optical and SAR data were developed to help the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol. Forest area and major tree species were mapped in study sites in Italy and Finland. Forest biomass was estimated in a plantation in Borneo using very high-resolution data. Results showed that instruments similar to Landsat Thematic Mapper are effective to provide required forest area information. C-band SAR can also be used in pure forest and non-forest mapping. A major challenge is to obtain reliable ground training and validation data as well as adequate and high-quality imagery for the reference year 1990 of the Protocol.
