Transcript

  • 1. Beyond Forest Cover:High-resolution Carbon Mapping for REDD+ JOE MASCARO, GREG ASNER, HELENE MULLER-LANDAU ET AL. DEPARTMENT OF GLOBAL ECOLOGY CARNEGIE INSTITUTION FOR SCIENCE SMITHSONIAN TROPICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE
  • 2. Panama is a Thriving Economy Panama had the highest 2008 GDP (both per- capita and absolute) among all Central American nations (FAO).
  • 3. Deforestation in PanamaOver the period from 2000 to 2010, Panama experienced 0.4% forest loss per year(FAO), a lower relative rate than all but one Central American nation, and a declinefrom forest loss in the previous decade.Net changes in forest cover mask a higher loss of primary forest, however—much ofwhich is balanced by secondary re-growth and plantations.Understanding these relative changes, beyond simply forest cover, is essential tomonitoring the welfare of carbon stocks and emission in support of REDD.
  • 4. Carnegie Airborne Observatory
  • 5. Laser-guided Spectroscopy of Tropical Canopies
  • 6. Light Detection and Ranging or “LiDAR”
  • 7. Three-dimensional Canopy Structure
  • 8. Carnegie’s REDDlite approachSatellite mapping of forest cover and changes in cover using CLASliteHabitat mapField calibration of LiDARLiDAR assessment of carbon storage across habitats
  • 9. Average aboveground carbon density, IPCC 2006• Tropicallandscapesare treated asif there issome averagecarbon stock.• What are thelocal toregional scalecontrols overcarbonstocks?
  • 10. Forest Change - 1999 to 2010
  • 11. Habitat Map by the Peruvian Ministry of Environment
  • 12. Integrating Airborne and Field Measurements
  • 13. Converting Airborne LiDAR to Aboveground Carbon Density
  • 14. Example CAO Lidar Data:Interoceanic Hwy, Peruvian Amazon
  • 15. Regional-scale Variation in Aboveground Carbon Stocks
  • 16. Progress in PanamaLiDAR calibration
  • 17. Carbon Mappingin the BarroColorado NatureMonument
  • 18. Movie Time
  • 19. Future Work Habitat stratification Dynamic change Wall-to-wall carbon storage
  • 20. The CAO Team
  • 21. Acknowledgements The CAO is made possible by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the W.M. Keck Foundation, and William R. Hearst III. Additional funding from HSBC, the Andrew Mellon Foundation, the Grantham Foundation, the NASA Biodiversity Program, and the National Science Foundation The CAO team includes Dave Knapp, Guayana Paez- Acosta, Ty Kennedy-Bowdoin, James Jacobson, John Clark, Robin Martin, Aravindh Balaji, and others.
