JESUS, Janisson Batista de  e  KUPLICH, Tatiana Mora. APPLICATIONS OF SAR DATA TO ESTIMATE FOREST BIOPHYSICAL VARIABLES IN BRAZIL. CERNE [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp.88-97.  Epub 17-Jun-2020. ISSN 2317-6342.  https://doi.org/10.1590/01047760202026012656.

The use of SAR images has been highlighted in scientific research focused on forest data collection worldwide. Thus, the present work aimed at gathering studies turned to the application of SAR images to obtain biophysical variables of forests in Brazil. Based on studies published in recognized databases, a growing amount of publications over time was observed with more focus on researches made mainly in Amazonian biome, followed by planted forests with eucalyptus destined to wood production. Most works were made based on airborne radar data, followed by ALOS/PALSAR and JERS-1 orbital data. It is remarkable the scientific knowledge produced using radar data from Brazilian forests, demonstrating that this technology is an other tool for studies and applications in Forestry Sciences that can assist in the country’s forestry management. Nevertheless, the need of studies on the several forest typologies across Brazil was evidenced, along with the lack of research related to radar use to estimate biophysical variables in caatinga and Atlantic Forest biomes.
