Synergistic use of Landsat 8 OLI image and airborne LiDAR data for above-ground biomass estimation in tropical lowland rainforests

Here we estimated AGB of primary tropical forests using airborne LiDAR and Landsat 8 OLI. We found that Landsat 8 OLI’s textures show greater potential to estimate AGB compared with LiDAR, and a synergistic use of Landsat 8 OLI and LiDAR outperforms the independent-data models in estimating biomass of tropical lowland rainforests.
