Rainforests store 229 billion tons of carbon globally finds new 'wall-to-wall' carbon map via @mongabay

Laser-based forest mapping as accurate for carbon as on-the-ground plot sampling (11/02/2011) Two new research papers show that an advanced laser-based system for forest monitoring is at least as accurate as traditional plot-based assessments when it comes to measuring carbon in tropical forests. Breakthrough technology enables 3D mapping of rainforests, tree by tree (10/24/2011) High above the Amazon rainforest in Peru, a team of scientists and technicians is conducting an ambitious experiment: a biological survey of a never-before-explored tract of remote and inaccessible cloud forest. They are doing so using an advanced system that enables them to map the three-dimensional physical structure of the forest as well as its chemical and optical properties. The scientists hope to determine not only what species may lie below but also how the ecosystem is responding to last y...
