Introduction
Hello ! I'm a master student at the Forest Research Institute in the Université du Québec en Abitibi- Témiscamingue (UQAT). My research is focused on estimating forest road degradation using remote sensing tools such as LiDAR and Sentinel 2. I hold a bachelor degree in Environmental Geography from Université de Montréal, where I worked on spruce budworm outbreak in eastern Canadian boreal forest.

Degradation of forest roads in Canada has strong negative effects on access to forestlands, together with economic (e.g., increased maintenance costs), environmental (e.g., erosion of materials and subsequent habitat contamination), and social (e.g., use risks) impacts. Maintaining sustainable and safe access to forestland requires a better underst...

L'objectif est de développer d'une part, à l’aide du lidar et de capteurs multiples, un système d’identification et de caractérisation (classification fonctionnelle) de routes forestières préexistantes à partir des variables extraites des modèles numériques de terrain (MNT) de très haute résolution spatiale et d’indices de végétation. Et de l'autre...
