Figure 1: Above Ground Biomass estimated with SMOS VOD, based on ESA CCI 2018
SMOS VOD was recently shown to be a good proxy to estimate the Above Ground Biomass, even though it is mainly driven by the vegetation water content. Two AGB estimates were already available from the CATDS, and are now extended to 2022, covering the period 2010-2022
All the information are reported in the technical note : Boitard et al. 2023, "AGB and TH estimation from SMOS LVOD", Technical note SO-TN-CB-GS-0108, version 3 ().
