One key objective of the ZAPÁS project (in close cooperation with the ESA project BIOMASAR-II) is the mapping and monitoring of growing stock volume at multiple scales. Different satellite data are being explored, for intance to track cover changes of the natural Taiga forest in the Krasnoyarsk and Irkutsk regions in Central Siberia. In the framework of the EU-Russia Space Dialogue data from the ESA ROSCOSMOS and JAXA Space Agencies are analyzed. After the first project year, the following data sourses are analysed:

  • Very high resolution: RESURS DK-1 [5 m] (Validation)
  • High resolution: ALOS PALSAR [25 m] (local to regional scale Growing Stock Volume mapping)
  • Coarse resolution: ENVISAT ASAR [1 km] (regional scale Growing Stock Volume mapping)
