Dr Yasumasa Hirata
Senior Researcher
Forestry And Forest Products Research Institute

Evaluation of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Functions of Mangrove Forests against Storm Surge by Remote Sensing

4:45 PM - 5:00 PM

Abstract

Biography

Dr. Yasumasa Hirata is senior researcher of Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute, Japan. His main research field is forest remote sensing, particularly lidar remote sensing and forest carbon accounting and REDD+. His main target is tropical forests and he has managed projects of forest monitoring in Southeast Asia and South America. He was lead author of 2019 Refinement to the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories and he was responsible for writing on wide-area carbon mapping and terrestrial lidar using remote sensing in it. He has contributed as a member of the Scientific Committee in past Silivilaser and ForestSAT. In particular, he chaired Silvlilaser 2006 in Japan.
