Assessing the carbon sequestration potential of managed forests: a case study from temperate Australia

Roxburgh, Stephen; Wood, Sue; Mackey, Brendan; Gibbons, Phillip; Woldendorp, Gemma

Description

1. The concept of assessing forests for carbon sequestration is well established. Operationally, estimating a forests' potential to sequester carbon requires comparing its current carbon state with a prediction of its carbon carrying capacity (CCC). Assessment of CCC is, however, problematic. Mathematical models can be used, although traditional modelling techniques, where parameters are estimated from empirical measurements, are usually limited by a lack of field data. For example, estimates...[Show more]
