Abstract:
Wepresent a synthesis of the land-atmosphere carbon flux from land use and land cover change (LULCC) in Asia usingmultiple data sources and paying particular attention to deforestation and forest regrowth fluxes. The data sources are quasi-independent and include the U.N. Food andAgriculture Organization-Forest Resource Assessment (FAO-FRA2015; country-level inventory estimates), the Emission Database forGlobalAtmospheric Research (EDGARv4.3), the ‘Houghton’ bookkeepingmodel that incorporates FAO-FRA data, an ensemble of 8 state-of-the-artDynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVM), and2 recently published independent studies using primarily remote sensing techniques.The estimates are aggregated spatially to Southeast, East, and SouthAsia and temporally for three decades, 1980–1989, 1990–1999 and 2000–2009. Since 1980, net carbon emissions from LULCCin Asia were responsible for 20%–40%of global LULCCemissions, with emissions from Southeast Asia alone accounting for15%–25%of global LULCCemissions during the same period. In the 2000s and for allAsia, three estimates (FAO-FRA,DGVM,Houghton) were in agreement of a net source of carbon to th ... mehr
