Paper Abstract

Models using NOAA AVHRR data for estimating the areal distribution of biomass over the Boreal coniferous zone are developed. The method uses corresponding models that are estimated using Landsat TM data as input, and includes a mosaicing scheme for AVHRR images to cover very extensive areas. The estimation method may be adjusted to some other forest characteristics too.
