Carbon Sinks Atlas

In 2014 the CSIR (in partnership with a number of other organisations) produced the National Terrestrial Carbon Sinks Assessment for South Africa (NTCSA). This work was undertaken as it had become obvious that attempting to account for the land-based terrestrial carbon stocks and flows using IPCC tier 1 or 2 methodologies was problematic in the South African context.

The CSIR in collaboration with SAEON later converted the NTCSA outputs into atlas format to make the data more widely accessible, i.e., The South African Carbon Sinks Atlas 2017 (hereafter referred to as the Carbon Atlas).
