STRUCTURE AND PARTICIPANTS

Workgroup 2

Harmonised estimation procedures for carbon pools and carbon pool changes


Leader:Prof. Göran Ståhl, Sweden
Deputy leader:Dr. Emil Cienciala, Czech Republic
Work Plan:here

The workgroup will focus on the definitions and measurements of those inventory variables that are related to the estimation of forest carbon pools and changes in carbon pools. The Action will interact with IPCC work. All the five pools, above-ground biomass, below-ground biomass, litter, dead wood and soil organic carbon are considered. Requirements of Kyoto Protocol are taken into account.
