ADV - Forest carbon and its role in greenhouse gas removals and emissions
Cloquet, MN 55720
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.
