Workshop

Forest Dynamics in the Anthropocene: Reconciling Satellite and Model-Based Estimates of Forest Carbon Mitigation Potentials

calendar
Apr 13th, 2021 - Apr 15th, 2021
location
Virtual Workshop

This workshop will convene an interdisciplinary group of scientists and stakeholders to assess the state of forest science in natural climate solutions. A synthesis report will be developed that aims to reconcile remote sensing and land-surface model estimates of the climate mitigation potential of forests. With key stakeholders from universities, national labs, federal agencies, NGOs, and the private sector, participants will engage through presentations and discussions driven by the carbon cycle as a “grand challenge”, new spaceborne observations, and translating science to action.
