Remote sensing of biophysical variables (pigment concentrations and structure variables) in a two layered vegetation system (savanna)

Remote sensing of biophysical variables (pigment concentrations and structure variables) in a two layered vegetation system (savanna)

Tropical savannas can act as carbon sink or source depending on environmental conditions. Differing fire regimes can alter vegetation structure and therefore carbon storage. Due to the large extent of savannas they make a large contribution to the total carbon balance. In contrast to many other ecosystems they form a distinct two layer system with a tree layer above a grass/shrub under-storey. This project will use remote sensing for mapping of pigment concentrations and structural variables in the two layers separately.
