Project Duration: 2013 - 2016
Solicitation:NASA: Carbon Monitoring System (2013)
Successor Projects: Cochrane-02  
Abstract: Project Summary: Because of episodic uncontrolled fires within drained peat-swamp forests, Indonesia is ranked the 4th largest CO2 emitter over the last half century. The former 1 million hectare Mega Rice Project (MRP), designed to convert extensive peat lands into farm lands, is a major emissions source. Deep organic soils storing vast amounts of ... [more]
