Abstract

Many techniques for the assessment of Carbone sequestration are developed for classic forests. But less researchers are interested in the evaluation of the Carbone sequestration capacity of marginal forests. In this paper, we propose an innovative technique of evaluating the capacity of Carbon sequestration of marginal forests, based on a new allometric equation and a new technique of colored and multiband image classification.
