GEO Forest Carbon Tracking Initiative
CEOS, with the support of the LSI Constellation, is demonstrating the technical capacity and institutional frameworks to support continuity of the required satellite observations in support of post-Kyoto regulatory frameworks.
7 National Demonstrator countries have been the subject of a coordinated satellite data acquisition effort by CEOS agencies in 2009 - with complete coverage achieved for both radar and optical data (LSI contributions).
A demonstrator portal showing available data and forest carbon datasets has been developed:
In addition, the Landsat contributions for the 7 National Demonstrator countries are searchable through the USGS:
