Abstract

The inversion of a numerical closed-form forest scattering model for quantifying woodland biomass and structure was investigated. A set of polynomials was established for double bounce scattering mechanism, which involves the stem height, diameter, dielectric constant, soil dielectric constant and root mean square roughness. Spatial estimates of total and component biomass were generated based on the resulting data layers derived through the modeling process, and by applying ratios of wet to dry biomass for key species
