- Über dieses Buch
This book features a comprehensive series of the overview articles on all relevant aspects of forest structure estimation from space and related fields. The overview articles in this book discuss the importance of the derived products for earth system science and policy, the latest earth observation system and techniques, aspects of ground data collection for contextualisation and validation and the consistent generation of estimates from multiple data stream.

- Über den Autor
Klaus Scipal received the M.Sc. degree in geodesy and the Ph.D. degree in remote sensing from the Vienna University of Technology (TUW), Vienna, Austria, in 1999 and 2002, respectively. From 2002 to 2006, he was an Assistant Professor with the TUW leading the scatterometer group. In 2006, he joined the satellite data assimilation section of the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts, working on the land surface assimilation system. Since 2009, he is with the Mission Science Division of the European Space Agency contributing to the definition and development of future earth observation satellites.
Anny Cazenave is director for Earth sciences at the International Space Science Institute, Bern, Switzerland and emeritus scientist at the ‘Laboratoire d’Etudes en Géophysique et Océanographie Spatiale’, Toulouse, France. Her research deals with the applications of space techniques to geosciences (geodesy, solid Earth geophysics, sea level change and climatic causes, land hydrology from space).
Teodolina Lopez received the Ph.D. degree in planetary science from the University Toulouse III in 2011. After different post-doctoral positions in France, she held an Earth Science post-doctoral position, from 2016 to 2019, at the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern, Switzerland. Her research focuses on the characterisation in (semi-) arid regions of the groundwater flow and transfers and their interaction with the atmosphere. This approach relies on the synergy between Earth Observation dataset (mostly thermal infrared and gravity) with in situ measurements (geophysical, geochemical and geology) and simulations.
