Testing C-band convoy mission for forest monitoring

Solberg, Svein; Ulander, Lars M. H.; Fransson, Johan E. S.


A C-band convoy mission with a receive-only interferometer using Sentinel-1 as the active sensor could cover the needs for an operational satellite mission for forest monitoring, that can clarify the magnitude and geography of the residual land sink of carbon in the global carbon budget; routinely map forest carbon changes in the tropics for REDD+, and routinely provide updated forest resource maps for operational forestry planning. We are about to carry out an airborne campaign in order to demonstrate the technical feasibility of this, and supplement this with analyses of Tandem-X.
