|Title:||Chapter3: Use of Earth Observation Technology to Monitor Forests over the Globe|
|Authors:||ACHARD Frederic; HANSEN Matthew C.|
|Publisher:||CRC Press Taylor and Francis|
|Type:||Articles in periodicals and books|
|Abstract:||As presented in Chapters 1 and 2, forests provide crucial ecosystem services. In this respect it is important to tackle the technical issues surrounding the ability to produce accurate maps and consistent estimates of forest type, location, area, condition, and changes in these factors at scales from global to local. Remotely sensed data from Earth-observing satellites are crucial to such efforts.|
