Scientists at Department of Agriculture target forestry

"Reliably estimating carbon storage and cycling in detrital biomass is an obstacle to carbon accounting. We examined carbon pools and fluxes in three small temperate forest landscapes to assess the magnitude of carbon stored in detrital biomass and determine whether detrital carbon storage is related to stand structural properties (leaf area, aboveground biomass, primary production) that can be estimated by remote sensing," scientists writing in the Canadian Journal of Forest Research - Revue Canadienne de Recherche Forestiere report.
"We characterized these relationships with and without forest age as an additional predictive variable. depended on forest type....
