How does Cool Farm Tool determine above-ground biomass for trees?


The model uses different allometric equations that determine biomass based on very few parameters, which are easy to measure (e.g. diameter at breast height). The selection is based on the allometric equations included in the IPCC 2006 report. Unfortunately, we do not have any European hardwood included yet. This is a drawback communicated by different users and is currently being developed as part of the new perennial crop module.
