EFI contributed to the activity on Forest and Soil Inventories in the Integration component of the Integrated Project. The general aim of the inventory based carbon budgeting methods was to:
- provide supporting data for Terrestrial ecosystem Models, Inverse modeling and the CDAM (Carbon Data Assimilation Methods) and constrain their estimates through a backcasting exercise,
- provide an independent estimate of the contemporary and future continental scale forest sector carbon balance at high resolution.
