This paper has demonstrated that an estimation approach to the retrieval of forest parameters is possible for Brigalow dominated regrowth, but the method could equally be applied to other forest types ... In order to retrieve parameters from the SAR data it is assumed σ 0 can be expressed as closed form parametric equations relating total backscatter to a small number of unknowns, describing forest structure ...doi:10.1109/igarss.2010.5652883 dblp:conf/igarss/ClewleyLMBDC10 fatcat:e7inifsoa5d2deyyzhdwlc57ly
Using inventory data collected from 74 plots, located in the Tara Downs subregion, forests were assigned to one of three regrowth stages based on their height and cover relative to that of undisturbed ... stands. ... Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Kyoto and Carbon (K&C) Initiative for providing the ALOS PALSAR FBD data used in this research. ...doi:10.3390/rs4082236 fatcat:w2kybh6wbzgb3hfigxax5l2j6a
Improvements in the reliability of mapping methods are anticipated by SAR-optical data fusion and use of very high resolution data. ... There has been progress in the capacity to discriminate forest age and growth stage using data fusion methods and LiDAR height metrics. ... Publisher's Note Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations. ...doi:10.1186/s13021-017-0078-9 pmid:28417324 pmcid:PMC5393981 fatcat:nyb3rjngp5a4plfs47r75w5y3u
and provide data required to constrain more sophisticated, 3-D approaches. ... Measurements of directional radiation streams also provide independent checks on model assumptions conventionally used in satellite retrievals, such as the application of 1-D radiative transfer theory, ... This paper is an outgrowth of discussions held during the Third International Workshop on Multiangular Measurements and Models (IWMMM-3) in Steamboat Springs, CO on 11 -12 June 2002, and we thank the participants ...doi:10.1016/j.rse.2005.06.006 fatcat:r3q3pb2gjffyrm6lv73cyvwoza
In the third objective, the soil C stocks of the study land uses were quantified to estimate C losses in soil owing to conversion. ... However, the SAR-based model was more accurate in predicting the biomass in the usually deficient-to-low vegetation cover replacement land uses. ... The generated information can also be used as an empirical basis to estimate emissions from land use change and forest degradation in mangrove. ...doi:10.26192/5c09b419f0cc2 fatcat:ni3ainbenzdorfcue3qai7uozm
In addition to their primary functions in photosynthesis, carotenoids play essential roles in plant reproduction by furnishing flowers and fruits with distinct pigmentation and as precursors for volatiles ... Light microscopy (eosin and hematoxylin staining) and confocal microscopy (Hoechst 33342, acridine orange and propidium iodide staining) were used to evaluate the mechanism of action of the acetone leaf ... We also used carbon stock data from restored and intact sites, and sampled carbon stocks at restored stands at a second site in the same thicket plant community. ...doi:10.1016/j.sajb.2012.02.002 fatcat:qspiytq66jh33l75n2fcabzvjy
