Detection and analysis of the global change impact on the forest-tundra ecotone: LAI, productivity and tree line border dynamics.
The object. Forest-tundra ecotone of Asia. Detailed investigations will take place in the several test areas, including the 'Ary-Mas', the northernmost forest stand.
Analysis of the space images will be based on on-ground measurements on the selected plots.
On a number of test sites, including the site of Ary-Mas, there are DISP, ERS, RADARSAT, JERS images. In 1999 the Landsat-7 data will also be obtained. In the region of investigation a number of tests sites are established, and dendrochronological data are collected.
