I saw this online and thought that some might be interested.

"User can download this free handbook which provides insight into how different Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) methodologies can be used for forest monitoring and biomass estimation. The handbook is a collaborative effort between the SERVIR program (USAID-NASA initiative) and SilvaCarbon. The growing availability of open SAR data from such sources as Sentinel-1 has made using radar data a feasible option for land cover mapping and monitoring. Of growing interest is the use of SAR data in the tropics where cloud-cover can make detecting land use activities challenging."
