GEO-TREES Launch Workshop at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC during 15-17 May 2024.

The GEO-TREES program is a global multi-network collaboration whose goal is to create the first ground-based, standardized reference system to ensure that satellite observations accurately represent real forest carbon stocks. Forests are a critical component of nature-based solutions for tackling climate change, and the GEO-TREES program will provide more accurate predictions of forests capacity to store carbon now and into the future. Building on decades of work from the global research community the initiative aims to produce open-access quality ground data for use among communities, decision-makers, and forest carbon markets. The program will use innovative technologies, partnerships, and broad sampling and long-term commitment to achieve these goals.

The workshop will launch the GEO-TREES initiative and will consist of meetings and presentations among the GEO-TREES executive board, advisory members, site principal investigators, and network leaders.

The IIASA Novel Data Ecosystems for Sustainability (NODES) research group is managing the GEO-TREES database and the portal to ensure free and open access to the data.
