The overall objective of the course is to impart advanced remote sensing (RS) knowledge and techniques to monitor forest cover and associated biomass. The participants will learn about the concepts of remote sensing for forest monitoring and techniques for biomass estimation using different biomass estimation models. Participants can use this knowledge to develop REDD projects that rely on RS technology for MRV processes.
