Logo: Module: Calculations for Estimating Carbon Stocks
This module describes the calculations necessary to estimate carbon stocks and their uncertainty, based on field data collected in a Terrestrial Carbon Monitoring System for REDD+.

The following guidance provide the steps needed to convert field measurements into mean carbon stock estimates for various pools and for estimating net change in carbon stocks. Guidance is provided on calculation of the following components of data analysis: • Statistical Measures

• Plot Analysis

• Wood Products

• Total stocks & total uncertainty

• Destructive Sampling

• Change in tree carbon stocks over time
