GC11B:
Carbon Monitoring Systems Research and Applications I Posters


Session ID#: 8514

Session Description:
Greenhouse gas emission inventories, forest carbon sequestration programs (e.g., Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD and REDD+), cap-and-trade systems, self-reporting programs, and their associated monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) frameworks depend upon data that are accurate, systematic, practical, and transparent.  For carbon, there are multiple monitoring, reporting, and verification frameworks in existence, reflecting a diversity of spatial scales, governing bodies, and relevant policies. Recently, the U.S. congress directed NASA to develop and prototype carbon monitoring system approaches in support of these and other applications.  Given the scientific challenges, policy importance, and breadth of activities occurring, this session will focus on research and applications (decision support and policy) of carbon monitoring system science and its alignment with stakeholder needs.
