  • TREES : Tropical ecosystem environment observations by satellites : TREES Series A : Technical Document no. 1 : Strategy proposal 1991-93 : Part 2 : ERS-1 SAR data collection analysis


The TREES project is concerned with the application of space monitoring techniques to the study of the tropical forests of the world in the context of tropical deforestation and its impact on the global ecosystem. This document outlines the strategy for integrating radar data collected by the EDS-1 satellite into a worldwide monitoring system. Specific project activities relate to data acquisition by ERS-1, and evaluation of the information content of several ERS-1 SAR products, followed by the development of algorithms for accurate geo-location of the SAR imagery and for the detection of change.
