Evaluation of 5 carbon pools in forest ecosystems

This network project facilitates the collection of new data relation to carbon dynamics from research plots. We will estimate carbon pools more precisely and update information across East Asia forest ecosystems. In this project, we apply 5 carbon pools (aboveground biomass; belowground biomass; litter; dead wood; and soil organic carbon) which was defined by IPCC GPG-LULUCF. Cesnsusing of carbon pools with broad range of forest type would give us new insights into forest carbon dynamics. Our research team will analyze spatial and temporal variations in carbon pools under different climates and site conditions. Our work will contribute to better prediction of future forest carbon dynamics.
