AccuCarbon: Combining growth models and multi-date satellite imagery inventory for improved carbon prediction of tropical forest

Development and demonstration of a pioneering service on the carbon storage of tropical forest to provide information on the emission or removal of forest carbon to support the MRV process of REDD+. AccuCarbon addresses the GFOI research priorities sensor interoperability and biomass estimation over the two Mexican provinces Durango and Chiapas.

The project addresses the GFOI research priorities sensor interoperability and biomass estimation. It aims to develop a combination of state-of-the-art analysis of tropical forest using Earth observation optical and SAR data with carbon accumulation models. The final pilot service provides information to support Tier level 3 reporting of REDD+ and supports sustainable forest management.
