Basic knowledge of forestry and biogeochemistry.
The course will help to understand how land use and especially forest management affects climate change, including forest carbon sink and storage and indirect biophysical climate effects, both globally and regionally. Measurements and certification of forest carbon balances, and forest ecosystems' feedbacks to climate will be covered.
