Accurate estimates of the CO2e removed from the atmosphere by plantations are required if markets are to be efficient. The study illustrates sampling and measurement techniques together with the application of an allometric equation, to obtain estimates of carbon sequestered in plantations of different ages and in old growth forests. It thus shows how measurement can be combined with a sophisticated modeling tool in the validation of carbon sequestration rates.
The study alludes to the potential for the development and application of such methods and models as that in the NCAS, for application in REDD projects in developing countries.
