Land-Cover and Elevation-Based Mapping of Aboveground Carbon in a Tropical Mixed-Shrub Forest Area in West Java, Indonesia

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.
