Shrub Height from Sentinel-2, Lena Delta, Siberia

Bartsch, Annett; Widhalm, Barbara

Primary data source is Sentinel-2. The cloud mask of the ‘fmask’ algorithm is applied as well as additional cloud detection by anomaly analyses. The latter is required as certain cloud situations are not captured in the original dataset. Water masking based on ‘fmask’ is applied in addition. Areas with NDVI 160’ cm are labelled as a separate class.
