The value of soil C inventories in the broader policy and research context

The role of data from forest soil inventories and monitoring programmes was reviewed. Options to connect soil C inventories with ecosystem information were discussed. The requirements for verifying changes identified using the available soil C inventory data were compiled. The review includes options to link soil inventories with ecosystem research sites, such as ICP Forests Level II, Integrated Monitoring and the CarboEurope flux measurement network. A second report discusses the soil-related results of CarboInvent in the context of the reporting requirements on carbon sequestration in forest soils.
