Mat Daud, Mohd Muhaizi and Ismail, Mohd Hasmadi and Mohd Sood, Alias and Kamarudin, Norizah (2013) Quantifying carbon and biomass in planted forests – a remote sensing perspective. In: International Forestry Graduate Students' Conference 2013 (FORGRAD 2013), 2-4 July 2013, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Serdang, Selangor. (pp. 181-184).


Planted forests are important sources of forest products such as roundwood, fuelwood and fibre. Planted forests also play a role in carbon emission and biomass storage and have implications on climate change mitigation. Carbon emissions and biomass of planted forests are uncertain. As such information on planted forest biomass storage and carbon stock is needed. Remote sensing, an important technology and tool, can provide spatial-temporal data on planted forest carbon and biomass studies which include identifying, monitoring and mapping of planted forest areas. This paper reviews the use of remotely sensed data in quantifying carbon and biomass in planted forests.
