This half-day seminar will address the challenges from within the international carbon markets for access to an accurate, cost effective and scalable means of quantifying carbon stock for forested land.

With satellite-derived Earth observation data becoming an increasingly important tool in global estimations of forest carbon stocks we’ll look at a new ‘one-stop-shop’ approach to scaling up ground based data through modelling and analysis whilst taking into account key quality indicators.
