    The C-MLR-estimated natural forest biomass was validated using forest inventory data for natural forests in Cambodia. The validation results showed a strong correlation (R 2 = ) between C-MLR-estimated natural forest biomass and field-based biomass, with RMSE = Mg/ha in deciduous forests. In high-biomass regions, such as dense Cited by: tems, and ecosystem models are providing forest maps with unprecedented resolution (Running et al. , Shugart et al. ). Three-dimensional remote sensing allows researchers to esti-mate forest canopy height, map the world’s forests, and estimate forest biomass and carbon stocks (Lefsky , Saatchi et al. ).

    Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to present and discuss the best methods to estimate live above ground biomass in the Atlantic Forest. The methods presented and conclusions are the products of a workshop entitled “Estimation of Biomass and Carbon Stocks: the Case of Atlantic Rain Forest”. national forest inventories are commonly aggregated to represent forest biomass at national or regional scales [Brown et al., ; Jenkins et al., ]. However, the forest inventories only characterize the commercially valuable wood rather than all forest biomass and need many years to .

Forest plays a special role in carbon sequestration and thus mitigating climate change. However, the large uncertainty in biomass estimation is unable to meet the requirement of the accurate carbon accounting.

The use of a suitable and rigor method to accurately estimate forest biomass is significant. Moreover, the world is increasingly facing the conflicting pressures of economic growth and Cited by: 3.

Since stem volume (x) in ts the influence of forest age, site class, stand density, and other biotic and abiotic factors on forest biomass, it can be used to calculate forest biomass, based on the corresponding area and volume in forest inventory data, even without information of forest age, site class, or any others (Fang et al., a, Fang et al., b).Cited by: Indirect methods of large-scale forest biomass estimation Article (PDF Available) in European Journal of Forest Research (2) January with 1, Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Despite the high precision of such inventories, however, they are designed to yield average wood volumes for administrative units; they do not provide maps of biomass at a resolution compatible with land-use Size: KB.

The estimation of the weight of vegetation in the forest is a time consuming operation. Most often this work is completed in remote locations so that efficient methods need to be employed. Two distinctly separate situations can be by: The forest biomass (which is referred to the arbor aboveground biomass in this research) is one of the most primary factors to determine the forest ecosystem carbon storages.

There are many kinds of estimating methods adapted to various scales. It is a suitable method to estimate forest biomass of the farm or the forestry bureau in middle and last : Ming Ze Li, Wen Yi Fan, Ying Yu.

Table 1 gives the inventoried area and the forest strata 2 for which the biomass is estimated. In this study we considered 21 different strata as classified by FSI.
