Satellites map carbon sequestered by forests, with accuracy of up to ten meters


(VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland) Led by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the EU North State project has developed a new method of using satellite images to evaluate the forest carbon balance. The carbon balance indicates how much carbon is sequestered or released by forests each year. This enables the carbon balance to be displayed on digital maps, with an accuracy of up to ten meters.
