Abstract

Radar remote sensing of boreal forest ecosystems has shown sensitivity of the radar backscatter values to the freeze/thaw-cycle, forest fires and logging. Using C-band data in combination with L-band from the operational radar satellites ERS andJERS-1 has shown great potential for vegetation mapping, despite the limitation to co-polarization only. JERS and ERS Tandem data will be acquired simultaneously in 1997 and 1998 from the central Siberian boreal forests. No ERS-data could be collected from this area until today. For this purpose, a DLR receiving station will be located in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
