Abstract: Objectives The primary objectives of our research are: (1) To independently quantify the relationship between biomass density and expected error from GEDI, NISAR and ICESat-2 in high AGB forests in Sonoma County, Costa Rica, and Gabon; (2) To identify the sources of error in high biomass forests for each mission, including from field estimates (GP ...
