LIFE OrgBalt articleGHG emissions measurement and sampling in forest lands: a variety of methods for assessing the effectiveness of climate change adaptation measures“ is AVAILABLE HERE.
Within the project LIFE OrgBalt, measures for mitigating climate change impacts on nutrient-rich organic soils in agricultural and forestry lands are demonstrated and tested. Climate change mitigation (CCM) measures selected for testing to be implemented in forest land can be divided into three groups: measures related to afforestation and forest restoration, measures that target increasing of tree cover through agroforestry and measures that aim at increase in forest carbon stocks (in soil and biomass) through the modification of forest management practices.
In the article on measurements done in agricultural lands, some of the key measurements done in forestry lands are described. Detailed descriptions about these measuring processes can be found in another published article – “GHG emissions measurement and sampling in agricultural lands: towards data-driven decision making for managing carbon rich organic soils”. However, in forestry lands, additional measurements are taken.
