AbstractSatellite remote sensing provides the necessary spatial and temporal coverages for terrestrial ecosystems, which are essential in estimating regional and global carbon cycle. Driven by the need in global change and ecological studies, there have been rapid developments in methods for information retrieval and quantitative analysis using satellite images. In this article, we provide an overview of these recent developments, with emphasis on the application to boreal ecosystems and the methods included in this review are ground-based instruments for measuring biophysical parameters, algorithms for retrieving biophysical parameters from specgtral measurements, geometrical-optical models for the algorithm development, landcover mapping, net primary productivity modelling, and full carbon cycle modelling.
