Paper Abstract

Spectral patterns of different forest land cover can identify certain pollution compounds, and water stress conditions based on the interaction of photons with the molecular structure of the forest target structure. Based on such methods, the objective of this research was to evaluate and characterize selected forest test area Baneasa- Tunari located in the Northern part of Bucharest metropolitan region, Romania, where the climate and anthropogenic stressors endanger natural and economical values of environment. Based on time-series Landsat TM, ETM, MODIS Terra/Aqua and IKONOS satellite data have been investigated urban forest land cover and forest biophysical parameters (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index- NDVI and Leaf Area Index- LAI) changes over 1990- 2011 period of time. Accuracy of image processing results (spectral classification) was confirmed through in-situ spectroradiometrical analysis of reflectance spectra with portable GER 2600 spectroradiometer.
