AbstractFull Text

The use of acoustics for determining tree stiffness can be helpful to improve end product value. However, methods to monitor equipment calibration in the field is limited. This experiment endeavored to test the hypothesis that ASTM D198 is an alternative way to monitor calibration performance in...

AbstractFull Text

This research aimed to estimate the biomass trunk of a Pinus taeda L. stand from vegetation indices from Landsat-8/OLI and Sentinel-2/MSI optical remote sensors. In order to obtain the biomass, a forest inventory was carried out with the installation of 33 circular plots of 400 m2, in which all the ...
