What is it about?

Utilization of free satellite images which supported by open source software is important. This reserch shows the ability of sentinel-2 images to estimate Abobe ground biomass. Sentinel-2 has band that called vegetation red edge band which can improve accuracy of AGB estimation than others free satellite images.

Why is it important?

This research important for scientists or developing countries who has less ability to buy high resolution satellite images because sentinel can obtained by free in ESA website. This research also provide guide hiw to use sentinel-2 especially pre-processing, vegetation indices calculation, resample , land cover classifification and biomass estimation.


I hope this article useful for the people who interesting in same area. This article incorporate some scientist who has different field area because this research is established by some area like forestry, remote sensing, environmental etc.
