About this book

The book provides readers with a state-of-the-art synopsis of the current methods and applied applications employed in remote sensing of the world's forests. This book introduces a series of case studies that exemplify the ways in which remotely sensed data are operationally used, as an element of the decision-making process, and in the scientific study of forests.

Media reviews

All chapters can easily be read as stand-alone papers. Some of the chapters may serve as excellent teaching material in application oriented training[...] Readers who are interested in remote sensing based data provision on forest and forest resources will find in this book a well done blend of scientific and application oriented papers and an extremely useful reference.
