Earth & Environment Assistant Research Professor Pontus Olofsson and Professor and Chair Curtis Woodcock are part of the lead author team behind the newly published “Methods and Guidance Document” from the Global Forest Observation Initiative (GFOI).

The “Methods and Guidance Document” provides methodological advice on the use of remotely sensed data together with the ground-based observations to estimate and report greenhouse gas emissions and removals associated with forests in a manner consistent with the greenhouse gas inventory guidance from Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The GFOI is ” a voluntary partnership of governments and international organization” that “recogniz[es] that international collaboration is essential for exploiting the growing potential of Earth observations to support decision making in an increasingly complex and environmentally stressed world” (“about-gfoi“).
