According to the Daily Mail, a satellite has been created in the UK to build a three-dimensional map of the Earth’s forests. Its peculiarity lies in the ability to look where other devices cannot look.
The satellite will be called BIOMASS and will carry the world’s first P-band radar. It will operate on waves with a length of about 70 centimeters, they are distinguished by the ability to penetrate many solid objects. The instrument will be able to look under the forest canopy and build a detailed forest map using synthetic aperture radar. The instrument is assembled by Airbus. “If you take not two slices, but many slices from several closely spaced orbits in a short period of time, you can, as it were, perform a CT scan of the forest”, the creators characterize the development.
As a result, scientists will be able to directly estimate the amount of forest biomass, and determine the impact of deforestation on climate change. The satellite developers at the University of Sheffield emphasize that being able to scan the same location multiple times is especially important in order to reduce the chance of error and observe the situation over time. The launch of the device is expected at the end of 2023, now it is at the stage of final assembly and testing.
