Measurement and Monitoring of the World’s Forests: A Review and Summary of Remote Sensing Technical Capability, 2009–2015

From Open Energy Information


"This report is part of a series of studies carried out under an initiative at Resources for the Future (RFF) to consider the economic, technical, and institutional issues associated with the goal of improving global forest measurement and monitoring. Companion studies under this initiative include an RFF discussion paper documenting uncertainties and discrepancies in existing forest measurement (Waggoner 2009) and another RFF report providing perspectives on “how good is good enough” in improving measurement and monitoring (Macauley and coauthors forthcoming). The financial support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is gratefully acknowledged for all work under this initiative."
