Combining growth models and multi-date satellite imagery inventory for improved carbon prediction of tropical forest (AccuCarbon) (2015-2017)
The project in short
Development and demonstration of a pioneering service on the carbon storage of tropical forest to provide information on the emission or removal of forest carbon to support the MRV process of REDD+. AccuCarbon addresses the GFOI research priorities sensor interoperability and biomass estimation over the two Mexican provinces Durango and Chiapas.
