Coupling SAR data with forest growth models
Recent studies have shown the potential of remote sensing data at optical wavelengths to provide spatially referenced input data for process-based forest growth models. In comparison, radar remote sensing remains underexploited, despite having numerous advantages. This letter assesses the potential of radar remote sensing data to estimate tree biomass and various structural features. It is concluded that there exists a wide range of strategies for coupling radar remote sensing with forest growth models.
