Country: Finland

BEF's applied for large-scale forest carbon inventory

Age-dependent BEFs developed in this project (Lehtonen et al. For. Ecol. Managem. 188: 211-224) were also applied for the estimation of biomass carbon stock and carbon sink of vegetation in Finland. In addition to estimation of carbon sink of vegetation, we also derived carbon input to the soil based on these biomass estimates and assessed carbon balance of forest soil with the help of dynamic soil carbon model Yasso (Lehtonen 2005 (available from, Liski et al. submitted manuscript).
