"WOODFOREST SATELLITE"

WOOD FOREST SATELLITE - STUDY OF THE STATE OF FOREST MASSES THROUGH SATELLITE TOOLS FOR TIMBER PURPOSES




DESCRIPTION

Currently, the majority of forest masses in the Valencian Community are not being exploited for various reasons. Among them is the lack of knowledge of the resource that is owned, where exactly it is located or the quality that this resource can offer. In relation to these reasons, there is also the low profitability of the exploitation and factors such as the poor quality of the product, the inventory costs or the difficulty of extraction (due to the orography of the land) reduce the benefit. In this project, it is hoped to solve those inconveniences for which the forest masses of the Valencian Community are not currently being used.

OBJECTIVES

The general objective of the project is to study and evaluate representative forest masses of the Valencian Community using remote sensing tools in order to carry out a logging of these masses with substantial improvements compared to current techniques.

To achieve the above general objective, the following specific objectives are proposed:

- Study the remote sensing tools available for forest evaluation.
- Choose technologies that provide variables of interest for the forest masses of the Valencian Community.
- Evaluate the different forest masses of the Valencian Community and select those of interest due to their specific composition and typology that are most representative.
- Take data in the field of the chosen parameters related to the quantity and possibility of wood for extraction
- Obtain variables of interest that relate remote sensing data with the quantification of wood and its growth.
- Develop algorithms that correlate the parameters in the field with the results of remote sensing for logging purposes.
- Creation of a new and representative study model for the variables of forest masses that allows sustainable forest management.
- Effectively disseminate the project and its results.
- Transfer and promote the results to companies in the Valencian Community of greatest interest.

Project Number: 22200046
Grant Agreement: IMDEEA / 2022/42
Duration: From 01/07/2022 to 30/09/2023

Coordinated in AIDIMME by: BLASCO MOLLÁ, FRANCISCO
R&D Line: BIOMATERIALS


RESULTS OBTAINED

Year 2023: Through the development of this project, a traditional inventory has been carried out (measuring heights and diameters manually) and it has been compared with the results obtained through the use of remote sensing tools. After the statistical study, it is revealed that by combining remote sensing variables together with the previous tool (aerial LiDAR), in a statistical model, the volume of wood in a mountain (with the study characteristics) can be determined with sufficient reliability. This fact offers great advantages since these tools are free and much faster than a traditional inventory. In the study, several study plots have been selected in the three provinces of the Valencian Community, looking for those most developed forests of Pinus halepensis (Aleppo pine) with a high probability of locating a greater volume of wood (such as reforestation). Thanks to the traditional inventory, it has been possible to know the current situation of these mountains.
