16:15 – 16:35Open In-Depth Discussion

During the constructive discussions a few clarifications on the tree-based methods:
the comparisons with biomass products is available a supplementary part here; LIDAR is a main source for training models (Liu et al 2023; and Li et al 2023); canopy height data availability at 30m and at 3 m upon request; evaluation with ground observations ( Li et al 2023; Li et al preprint).

XII. Disturbances and ecosystem recovery : January 24th, 2024
XI. Biomass and Climate Change : November 9th, 2023

Plants on Earth play a crucial role in mitigating climate change by sequestering carbon. However, their ability to do so is evolving in response to climate change and faces threats from human activities and natural disturbances. Thus, monitoring and understanding the link between carbon sequestration (biomass) by vegetation and climate change, particularly the resilience of terrestrial ecosystems, is essential to support climate policy development and the advancement of natural climate solutions.
