En la Estrategia Nacional de Cambio Climático de Costa Rica se recalcó la importancia de los ecosistemas boscosos en la absorción y fijación de CO2, como un mecanismo para lograr la carbono-neutralidad. Esta investigación ...
Determination of carbonyls and their sources in three sites of the metropolitan area of Costa Rica, Central America
(Springer Science+Business Media B.V, 2011-03-02)
Ambient levels of carbonyl compounds and their possible sources were studied at three places in the metropolitan area of Costa Rica, including a residential, an industrial, and a com mercial downtown area with high ...
Carbon accumulation in the biomass and soil of different aged secondary forests in the humid tropics of Costa Rica
Efforts are needed in order to increase confidence for carbon accounts in the land use sector, especially in tropical forest ecosystems that often need to turn to default values given the lack of precise and reliable site ...
Carbon accumulation in aboveground and belowground biomass and soil of different age native forest plantations in the humid tropical lowlands of Costa Rica
(Universidad Nacional, Costa Rica, 2012)
Generic or default values to account for biomass and carbon accumulation in tropical forest ecosystems are generally recognized as a major source of errors, making site and species specific data the best way to achieve ...
