Abstract

Forest biomass is a major store of carbon, and plays an important role in the carbon cycle. Since the net carbon flux of the forest and the magnitude of carbon loss and uptake are determined by the rate of biomass change (reduction or accumulation) at fine spatial and temporal scales, only satellite data can adequately capture its dynamics over larger areas.
