Carbon sequestration and storage are among the most important ecosystem services provided by tropical forests. In the recent paper, Dr. Elham Sumarga and the team examined the use of land-cover and elevation-based methods of aboveground carbon mapping in Geulis Mountain to elucidate how much carbon is stored in the forest, providing important input to our forest management.
