The net ecosystem carbon exchange of human-modified environments in the Australian Capital Region

Porfirio, Luciana; Steffen, Will; Barrett, Damian J.; Berry, Sandra Lee

Description

As part of a larger study to quantify and map ecosystem services in southeast Australia, we estimated carbon stored in biomass and soils and the net ecosystem carbon exchange between the land surface and the atmosphere in the Australian Capital Region (ACR). Our aim was to understand and quantify how different human-modified landscapes provide an essential ecosystem service: the exchange and storage of carbon in the landscape. Using a remote sensing based modelling methodology, we obtained...[Show more]
