Techniques for Estimation and Monitoring of Project Areas and Boundary

Part of the Advances in Global Change Research book series (AGLO, volume 29)

Estimating the area and delineating the boundary of a land-use category for greenhouse gas inventory and of area dedicated for a proposed project is the first basic step in preparing a carbon inventory. Methods ranging from field measurements, such as a physical land survey, to more complex methods involving the use of a satellite available for estimating land area and marking its boundary are presented in this chapter. The need for stratification of land area to increase the accuracy will be highlighted (methods for stratification are described in Chapter 10). These methods could be used in preparing greenhouse gas inventories of different land-use categories for use in carbon mitigation or roundwood production projects.
