Summary

The FP7 project, CEUBIOM, focuses on assessing and optimising the availability of biomass resources. Earth Observation techniques are being employed to identify and estimate the potential of biomass production for specific areas. The data derived from this tool, along with in-situ measurements based on common agricultural and forestry survey practices offer great potential for determining biomass production. Within the project, a harmonized methodology will be proposed for assessing the land use/coverage and forest types, above-ground biomass, carbon content.
