Global dataset for Blue Carbon Model
Hi InVEST users;
A question for those who have used
the draft global dataset for BCM.
Can anyone explain the following
formula that is being used to calculate soil carbon storage in saltmarsh
Carbon storage (t CO2e ha-1)
= (Carbon density (g cm-3)* 10^6 * 10^4 * 44)/(12 * 10^6)
I know 44/12 (3.67)
is the molecular weight of CO2 which is needed for
converting “t C ha-1” to “t CO2e ha-”.
