Global Change Research Program
U.S. Carbon Budget Analysis Presentation
Richard Birdsey, Northern Global Change Research Program Manager,
and Linda Heath, Research Forester, were invited by the U.S. to
present the methods and results of the forest carbon budget analysis
underlying the U.S. submission on land use, land use change and
forestry at a side event of the 13th SBSTA meeting in Lyon, France.
It is a discussion of the resulting estimates under Article 3.3
and 3.4 of the Kyoto Protocols. We have made an enhanced copy of
the presentation available for downloading. We have written notes
to accompany the slides, so it is informative to view the notes
window in Powerpoint while viewing the slides.
United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change:
We ask that if you use any information from this
presentation that it be cited and the web site referenced. We are
working on a manuscript to describe the methods in further detail.
The paper should be completed by early 2001.
