Carbomap CEO publishes view on biomass mapping in Nature Climate Change

As a group of scientists at the universities of Edinburgh and Maryland, and the FAO UN-REDD Programme, we’ve just published a short piece in Nature Climate Change magazine entitled “Radar backscatter is not a ‘direct measure’ of forest biomass”. The focus of this correspondance is “to contest the use of the term ‘direct measurement’ to describe the application of radar backscatter intensity to map forest AGB.”

A further discussion on this piece is available here.
