Carbon Inventory Methods Handbook fills the need for a handbook that provides guidelines and methods required for carbon inventory. It provides detailed step-by-step information on sampling procedures, field and laboratory measurements, application of remote sensing and GIS techniques, modeling, and calculation procedures along with sources of data for carbon inventory. The book is driven by a growing need for carbon inventory for land use sections such as forests.

From the reviews: "The format of the book makes for easy reading and understanding and is excellent for forest management, climate change mitigation, and environmental scientists ... . To be precise, Ravindranath, N. H. and Madelene Ostwald's book is therefore outstanding. In my opinion, their book will soon become a 'must in the field. The expertise of the authors coupled with an excellent organization and objective presentation of material will certainly make this book a great success among students, teachers, and researchers."
