In Q1 2021 the biomass reference network concept officially because a GEO Activity, ‘Forest Biomass Reference system from Tree-by-Tree Inventory Data (GEO-TREES)’, which will facilitate coordination on collection of biomass reference data for EO products. While this is now a GEO activity, CEOS agencies are central to the GEO-TREES concept and this activity will be linked to CEOS through both WGCV LPV Biomass and LSI AFOLU Forests. This activity will link forest plot networks, academic institutions, GFOI, and CEOS agencies, and other relevant organizations to help fund, collect, disseminate and process biomass reference datasets.
