Harnessing Remote Sensing to Accomplish Full Carbon Accounting: Workshop Report
The workshop "Harnessing Remote Sensing to Accomplish Full Carbon Accounting" was held on December 9-11th, 1999 at IIASA with the intention of meeting the following objectives: 1. To Promote the mutual interests of remote sensing and carbon science communities by exchanging the ideas regarding the requirements for carbon accounting and the current available products derived from remote sensing land information systems; 2. To produce strategic recommendations on how to improve FCA at different scales with the use of remote sensing tools; and, 3. To develop a Framework to Apply Recommendations for Sub-global and National-Level Case Studies. Although these ambitious targets were only part met, three discussion group sessions resulted in describing: - What is required to implement full carbon accounting; - How remote sensing can be used to assist this implementation; and, -How remote sensing can be used to reduce the uncertainties related to FCA. This report summarizes the presentations, discussions and results of this workshop and outlines the next steps to be taken by IIASA.
