Mapping global forest biomass using satellite imagery

Biomass is a fundamental biophysical variable that quantifies the Earth’s living vegetation. It has profound social and economic importance as a source of materials and energy, and its state, dynamics and resilience have impacts on the whole Earth system. The main purpose of the GlobBiomass project was to better characterize and to reduce uncertainties of above ground biomass estimates.
