Synthetic Aperture Radar-based forestry change detection
As part of carbon monitoring, it is useful to be able to monitor the extents of forests and to detect thinning and the incursion of roads. Many forested areas are very remote and very large, and imaging these optically is difficult owing to the lighting and clear weather requirements. However, L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is able to penetrate cloud and mist and is active, so does not require sun illumination. SAR produces map-like complex reflectivity images of the surveyed area, and it will be necessary to automatically and reliably detect changes between successive images. The aim of this PhD is to develop and demonstrate a method for detecting change in forests from time series of SAR imagery.
