Quantifying changes in carbon stocks and forest structure from Amazon degradation

30 Jul 2018

Discover more about quantifying long-term changes in carbon stocks and forest structure from Amazon forest degradation in this video abstract published in Environmental Research Letters (ERL) by Danielle I RappaportDouglas C MortonMarcos LongoMichael Keller, Ralph Dubayah and Maiza Nara dos-Santos. The team combined annual time series of Landsat imagery and high-density airborne lidar data to characterize the variability, magnitude, and persistence of Amazon forest degradation impacts on aboveground carbon density and canopy structure. ERL comes to you from Physics World parent IOP Publishing.
