Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques for Terrestrial Carbon Inventory
Remote sensing is a technique that holds great potential for long-term monitoring of changes in area and carbon stocks. This chapter discusses the application of different techniques for different project types in terms of feasibility and reliability; highlights uncertainties, cost and required technical capacity; describes the application of geographical information systems (GIS) methods for carbon inventory for different projects; and also assesses the role of remote sensing and GIS techniques for long-term carbon inventory.
