Forests are the largest terrestrial carbon sink on earth and provide a number of goods and services to society. Accurate estimates of forest carbon stocks and stock changes are needed to report greenhouse gas emissions and removals as part of the United States' commitment to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This presentation will discuss how Forest Inventory and Analysis data and auxiliary information such as remotely sensed data are being used to estimate forest carbon for greenhouse gas reporting.

This webinar is part of the Sustainable Forest Education Cooperative 2020 series. You may register for each session individually for $20.00 or the entire series for $50.00.
