"Density × Volume": A non-Destructive Observation Technology of Tree aboveground Biomass

4:15 PM - 4:30 PM

Abstract

Biography

Zhao Dan, Associate Researcher of the Institute of Space and Astronautical Information Innovation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), recipient of the National Key R&D Programme for Young Scientists of the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). He has proposed the non-destructive observation technology of "density × volume" and the remote sensing technology of "parameter-model-validation". He led the completion and release of the national 250-metre spatial resolution vegetation aboveground biomass dataset. He has successively undertaken projects and themes of the National Key Research and Development Programme, projects of the National Natural Funding Committee of China, the Pilot Project of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and STS projects, etc. He has published more than 50 academic papers and one monograph.
