Carbon Monitoring

An inventory of carbon monitoring plots was carried out in Godavari Centre in May 2012 to establish a mechanism for long term monitoring of forest carbon stock. The objectives were to establish permanent plots and monitor forest carbon and assess changes in forest carbon stock in different vegetation types with various silviculture treatments, to provide visitors with hands-on experience in applying carbon monitoring techniques and to test ground based and RS/GIS techniques and compare carbon data obtained from these two techniques.
