Sentinel-2 outperformed Landsat 8 in forest variable estimation

In a recent paper, published in Remote Sensing of Environment we compared the performance of Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 satellites in the estimation of forest variables in Finland. The variables were stem volume (V), stem diameter (D), tree height (H) and basal area (G), and their species-wise components for pine (Pine), spruce (Spr) and broadleaved (BL) trees. We compared the S2 and L8 performances using twelve different test setups including different Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 band combinations and pixel resolutions, and using two different modelling methods. They also identified the best predictive image bands for each test setup.
