This is a pan-European map of living forest above-ground carbon. The map was implemented following IPCC Tier 1 method. Maps of forest biomass stock and carbon are relevant for quantifying terrestrial carbon storage and carbon sinks as well as for estimating potential emissions from land cover changes (afforestation, deforestation, reforestation), forest fragmentation and biotic (pests) and abiotic (e.g. forest fires, windstorms) disturbances.
