Abstract

Measuring and monitoring forest productivity and carbon (C) is of growing concern for natural resource managers and policymakers. With the Delaware River Basin (DRB) as a pilot region, this subproject of the CEMRI sought to: improve the ability of the ground-based Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) networks to more completely assess forest C stocks and fluxes, integrate estimates of forest biomass and net primary production (NPP) from available remote sensing products with FIA data, characterize the effects of land use change and forest fragmentation on cumulative C stocks and fluxes, and integrate disparate monitoring networks to develop complete site-level and Basin level C budgets including C loss by water transport.
