Event Dates: March 2nd – 6th, 2020. Location: Canberra, Australia.
The Australian CEOS SIT Chair team has nominated ‘carbon and biomass’ as one of the thematic priorities for its 2020-21 term and proposed ‘accelerating the policy relevance of the new above-ground biomass (AGB) measurement missions’ as a stated objective. Part of the approach will be to ensure awareness and support for the anticipated CEOS WGCV LPV Biomass Protocol to ensure appropriate application and interpretation of the new AGB datasets.
The main objectives are to bring together the ground in-situ measurement networks, to update the status of CEOS WGCV LPV supersites, to evaluate the potential of these sites for biomass validation, to work with the CEOS WGCV LPV Biomass protocol team to generate a ‘pitch’ to CEOS Principals at the CEOS SIT-35 meeting in Tasmania in late March and to address outreach to relevant policy implementation or invetory agencies to explore potential links from CEOS Agency biomass measurement coordination.
