CarboEurope IP - Assessment of the European Terrestrial Carbon Balance

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.
