Leader: Tran Van Do
Department: Leadership Institute
Duration: 07/2017 - 12/2018
Sponsor: IFS
Field: Natural forests
Categories: Project

· To quantify carbon stocks/fluxes in all carbon pools leading to estimation of Net Ecosystem Production of forests in Vietnam

· To apply a new approach compared to a conventional approach in order to estimate NEP (especially estimating production of coarse roots) in Vietnam.


- NPP Estimation

+ Aboveground biomass increment

+ Coarse root increment

+ Aboveground litterfall

+  Fine root production

+ Converting NPP to carbon

- Soil respiration measurement
