Abstract

The carbon market is growing in quantitative and qualitative ways as climate change becomes a reality. Particularly, forests are recognized as carbon sink by the United Nations, and its role is drawing more attention as a cost-effective way of mitigating climate change. In Korea, the forest carbon offset scheme is defined as a system in which companies, forest owners, and local governments voluntarily maintain and promote carbon sinks, and the government certifies the amount of forest carbon absorption through it. The purpose of this study is to identify the difference in terms of forest carbon stock when measured using on-the-ground manual methods and digital techniques using terrestrial Lidar on a large area. The study results show that the two methods are not different.
