Modelling forest biomass in near-arctic regions

Mat Disney presents research at historic meeting of polar scientists

Modelling forest biomass in near-arctic regions

Dr. Mathias Disney attended the International Polar Year (IPY) meeting in Oslo on June 7-12 2010, the largest meeting of polar scientists in history. He presented research carried out as part of the NERC-funded ABACUS (Arctic Biosphere Atmosphere Coupling Across Multiple Scales) consortium project.

This was designed to quantify and understand the flows of carbon, energy and water across scales in vulnerable and rapidly-changing near-arctic regions.

Mat showed new results based on detailed models of vegetation scattering which were used to estimate forest biomass in northern Fennoscandia from remote sensing data.
