Topic : Estimation of carbon stock and aboveground biomass mapping in Mayang Hill and Barduar Reserve Forests, Assam, India using Landsat data

Authors:Tanvi Hussain || Rashmi Hazarika, Dr. Sarbeswar Kalita

Abstract:Barduar and Mayang Hill Reserve Forest are located in the outer hilly ranges of Khasi Hills are covered with tropical moist deciduous forest. Forest ecosystem contains more carbon per unit area than any other land type. The estimation of above- ground biomass is an essential aspect of carbon stock study. The Aboveground biomass (AGB) governs the potential carbon emission that could be released to the atmosphere due to deforestation and change of regional AGB is associated with changes in carbon and ecosystem. A field survey on this forest using 30 sample points of 30m x 30m dimension was carried out to with the aim to estimate the AGB of the woody trees of the two forests in 2015 and 2017 and to estimate the carbon stock present from 2015 to 2017. Landsat images were used to delineate the different canopy cover in the forest and extrapolation of AGB was done in different canopy cover using remote sensing techniques..
