a guide addressing some of the serious issues threatening the planet
In collaboration with Mexico’s National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR) and the Mexican Norway Project (MNP), a team of scientists at Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC), led by Josef Kellndorfer and Oliver Cartus, has created a detailed national map of aboveground forest carbon stocks. This map, sponsored by USAID within the framework of Mexico’s REDD+ project led by The Nature Conservancy (TNC), would assist the national government to enhance a robust Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system for national carbon emissions.
Using a combination of co-located field measurements, LiDAR observations and imagery recorded from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), WHRC researchers produced national level maps showing the amount and spatial distribution of aboveground carbon.
