SummaryThe study seeks to establish the benefits of integrating Terra-SAR X with ALOS PALSAR and Landsat sensor data for enhancing the classification of land covers and retrieving the above ground biomass of forests from PALSAR data. The study will utilise ALOS PALSAR data acquired in both wet and dry periods to establish the impacts of surface moisture on biomass retrieval. To support the analysis, land cover information and biomass estimated from 150 plots measured in 2007 will be used. Research funding will be provided by ANU and Aberystwyth University.
