Above ground carbon

Above ground carbon

Indicator unit: The above-ground carbon (AGC) is expressed in Mg (megagrams or tonnes) of carbon per km2 . It corresponds to the carbon fraction of the oven-dry weight of the woody parts (stem, bark, branches and twigs) of all living trees, excluding stump and roots, as estimated by the GlobBiomass project (globbiomass.org) with 2017 as the reference year.

Area of interest: The AGCI has been calculated at the country level and for all protected areas and is provided for each country, each terrestrial ecoregion, and each terrestrial and coastal protected area of size ≥ 1 km2.
