Abstract: 

The importance of forests as terrestrial carbon sink in the global carbon cycle is well known. In the current climate change context, the knowledge of the amount of carbon sequestered by forest has ecologic, economic and political implications. (…)This aim of this project is to optimize Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) estimates in Mediterranean oak woodlands at local and regional scale by the use of remotely sensed data.
