Abstract

The vegetation in the S. Greenland valley Quingua-dalen, containing the best developed subarctic birch "forest", has been mapped by two different methods. One combines the use of infrared air photos with ground truthing. A description of the woodland with analyses of the forest floor vegetation is given. The second method includes the use of data recorded by the Multi Spectral Scanner onboard the Landsat satellite. Advantages and disadvantages of the two methods are discussed.
