A study for SAR tropical biomass mapping in plantation forest in
Indonesia is now undergoing by using Envisat ASAR images. This study
will fill the gap since the existing SAR tropical biomass studies in
Amazon (global) and Indonesia Radar Experiment – INDREX (local) are
mostly concentrated in natural forest.
In the first step, the study will explore the link between ASAR
precision image parameters with ground measurement parameters, namely :
Mid Rotation Inventory (MRI) and Pre-Harvest Inventory (PRI). In the
second step, the InSAR method will be applied. This will follows with
the PolinSAR method in the last step.
The preliminary result is presented by using ASA_IMP_1P 4 February 2003
for precision image, and ASA_IMS_1P 4 February and 11 March 2003 for
repeat pass InSAR, and ASA_APS_1P 29 July 2003 and SLCI 29 July 2003
for cross InSAR (ERS-2/Envisat).
