Forest Carbon Monitoring project presented in the Finnish Satellite Workshop 2021

The Forest Carbon Monitoring project team participated the Finnish Satellite Workshop and Remote Sensing Days 2021 (, which was organized as a virtual event 23-24 August 2021. It is the largest New Space meeting in Northern Europe with nearly 500 people participating this year, from all over the world. The meeting brought together space technology specialists, scientists and EO users to discuss current topics in a rapidly developing space field.

The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, who is coordinating the Forest Carbon Monitoring project, presented the project in the ‘Biodiversity and Climate’-session on the second day of the workshop. The presentation gave an overview of the newly launched project, highlighting the main objectives, activities and timeline. The presentation was well received and the participants showed interest in following the progress of the project in the coming two years.

In addition to providing a good stage for distributing the information of the Forest Carbon Monitoring project, the event gave a great opportunity for the project team to hear about the latest developments in both the satellite hardware as well as the satellite data application. The project team will continue to provide updates and present results of the project in the future Finnish Satellite Workshops and other events.

Project aim

Biomass maps of Europe

Demonstration products are emerging

Yet another major milestone in the Forest Carbon Monitoring project has been achieved, with the processing of the output products for the original seven demonstrations finished. We are proud to be able to share some highlights of the demonstration products here, although the work with the demonstrations will still continue […]

Using a global biomass map to assess the precision of Above Ground Biomass (AGB) estimates within the Peruvian Amazonia

Country case studies linking the information from a national network of forest inventories and satellite data are needed to gain experience and build confidence on how forest-related greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring and reporting can benefit from evolving space-based biomass products. In the Forest Carbon Monitoring project, we had the opportunity […]
