Carbon stocks and flows in forest ecosystems based on forest inventory data

  title={Carbon stocks and flows in forest ecosystems based on forest inventory data},
  author={Aleksi Lehtonen and Raisa M{\"a}kip{\"a}{\"a}},
Countries are currently reporting changes in carbon pools of forests to UNFCCC. According to the reporting guidelines methods should be transparent and verifiable, and also the quantification of the uncertainty is asked. The objective of the thesis was to develop methods for quantifying carbon stocks and fluxes at national scale based on forest inventory data. To estimate tree biomass of forests, representative BEFs (biomass expansion factors) with uncertainty estimate were developed for… CONTINUE READING
