The My Sustainable Forest team is happy to invite you to submit a manuscript to a Special Issue on “Operationalisation of Remote Sensing Solutions for Sustainable Forest Management” at the Remote Sensing Journal.

This special issue is linked with H2020 project My Sustainable Forest, however, contributions from other researchers are very welcome. With this Special Issue, My Sustainable Forest project aims at compiling research papers dealing both with remote sensing methodologies and the implementation of research results to facilitate sustainable forest management.

The focus is placed on remotely sensed data, the development of algorithms for forest site characterisation, wood characterisation, biomass and CO2 stocking, mapping forest conditions, ecosystem vulnerabilities, socioeconomic functions and conditions, as well as on operationalisation of remote sensing for natural resource management through the integration of scientific research and its practical utilisation.

Overall, we call out for contributions combining remote sensing and any of the targets of the 2030 strategic research and innovation agenda for the forest-based sector.

About My Sustainable Forest

‘My Sustainable Forest’ project aims at developing a pre-commercial service platform for forest stakeholders to integrate Earth Observation data into daily forest stakeholders’ decision making processes and operations. My Sustainable Forest is funded by the EU Commission H2020 framework programme for the period November 2017 to October 2020 under grant agreement No 776045.

MySustainableForest is a project composed of 11 European partners, including EFI, that provides Earth Observation (EO) geo-information products across the wood sector. MySustainableForest translates and synthesises satellite, Lidar, meteorological and in-situ data, together with customised forestry models, to create site-specific products that support forest users’ decision-making.
