Sentinels supporting carbon estimates and REDD+ (SenseCarbon)

SenseCarbon develops methods to improve the mapping of REDD+ relevant land use and land cover change processes. In preparation of the upcoming Sentinel missions, SenseCarbon uses existing optical and SAR remote sensing data archives of different spatial and temporal resolutions. Our research preliminary focus on the development of advanced image processing techniques including state-of-the art (i) classification methods, (ii) fusion of X-band + C-Band as well as multispectral + SAR data, and (iii) analysis of SAR time series. Besides the methodological development, the projects aims on the generation of recent and historic land cover for study sites in the Brazilian Amazon
