Developing an Approach to Measure the Climate Impact of Deforestation and Forest Degradation on Borneo

Project Title: Indonesia Carbon Monitoring System

A lot of field work is necessary to truly understand the role of forests in climate change — both the benefits of preserving them and the impact of cutting them down. As part of a NASA-funded initiative, Winrock is spearheading the planning, collection and analysis of data to understand the impacts of selective logging on carbon stocks in the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo.
