Our paper on modeling and detection of deforestation in TanDEM-X data has been published in JSTARS special issue on forest structure estimation and it can be found here.
Biomass estimation from L-band tomography
There is a new paper available on-line on IEEE Explore, showing the potential of L-band SAR tomography for biomass estimation in boreal forests. Check it out here.
New paper on national biomass mapping with TanDEM-X
Our latest paper shares our experiences from large-scale biomass mapping with the TanDEM-X InSAR system. It has just been published in Remote Sensing and you can read it here.
New paper: Biomass estimation in a boreal forests from TanDEM-X data, lidar DTM and the interferometric water cloud model
A new paper has been published in Remote Sensing of Environment. The paper deals with model-based biomass estimation in Krycklan from TanDEM-X data using the high-resolution digital terrain model available for the entire Sweden. You can read the paper here.
New paper on model-based estimation of boreal forest properties from TanDEM-X data
This week, I received positive news from IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters: my paper has been accepted. The title of the letter is: “Estimation of Boreal Forest Properties from TanDEM-X Data using Inversion of the Interferometric Water Cloud Model” and together with my co-authors Jan Askne and Lars Ulander, we introduce a new method to interferometric water cloud model (IWCM) inversion, apply it to a large stack of TanDEM-X data, and evaluate the estimated model parameters against forest parameters, system setup, and environmental factors. You can read the paper here.
Adjunct researcher at UTas
I have been appointed an adjunct researcher position in the School of Land and Food at University of Tasmania in Hobart. My plan is to promote radar remote sensing at the department and analyse Tasmanian forests with TanDEM-X.
BorealScat tower lifted
This week, the BorealScat tower was lifted. What a feeling to see the tower in real life!
Photos of the lifting are available on the official BorealScat website (www.borealscat.se).
It is decided! In late October, my wife and I are moving to Australia for a few years. We are looking forward to this new adventure and our new life in Hobart, Tasmania. Tasmania has spectacular forests so I am pretty sure that there will be some exciting work to do there for me.
Initially I didn’t intend to go to IGARSS this year but due to clerical mistakes in the Swedish system, I’ll be replacing our Ph.D. student Albert Monteith. I will have two oral presentations, one about our BorealScat experiment and one about biomass mapping with ALOS. You can find the submitted papers here and here.
See you in China!
