Potential of mapping forest damage from remotely sensed dataLindberg, Eva; Bohlin, Inka; Bohlin, Jonas; Fransson, Johan; Huo, Langning; Nilsson, Mats; Persson, Henrik; Wallerman, Jörgen
Remote sensing is an efficient tool for mapping, monitoring, and assessing forest damage and the risk of damage. This report presents ongoing research on those topics with preliminary results as well as research planned by the Department of Forest Resource Management, SLU in Umeå, in the near future. The damage types include spruce bark beetle attacks, storm damage, and forest fire. The report also outlines proposed continued research in the area and possible collaborations within and outside SLU.
