Title: Forest Carbon Potential

Description

Forest carbon potential is an indicator which is developed to assess relative changes in carbon stock and flows and to compute its variation between two time periods, in relation to the extent of forests within the European Union. The indicator is based on outputs of the Community Land Model (Above ground carbon, Fine root carbon, Total soil organic matter carbon, Risk of fire). It presents the change per pixel observed between 2000 and 2010.
