Mapping Carbon in the Forests: Seeing Both the Forest and the Trees

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas. As forests grow, they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere, in a process called sequestration, while deforestation and forest degradation release it back into the atmosphere. Therefore, the amount of carbon stored in forests is of great scientific, economic, and political interest.   The effects of
