FLINTpro is bringing CAMfor back into the light and you can download it here.
The world is full of excel-based carbon calculators… so why bring this one back?
Estimating and projecting GHG emissions and removals in forests and other land uses is far more complicated than AD x EF. CAMFor (Carbon Accounting Model for Forests) is a stand-level forest carbon model that combines tree growth data with management data to estimate the impacts of growth, fire and harvesting on carbon stocks, GHG emissions and wood products.
A precursor to FullCAM, CAMFor can still be found online, but is buried deep in the Australian Government website archive system. So we are bringing it back out into the light and sharing it for download here.
We still use CAMFor as a training tool for those new to carbon accounting and for smaller projects where excel based methods are well suited. It is an excellent tool for those looking to bring a more advanced analysis of forests beyond AD x EF.
How does this relate to FLINTpro? Imagine running CAMFor over a billion times, integrating millions of different combinations of land use, climate and management practices… simply not possible. FLINTpro runs models such as CAMFor by automating all these processes, allowing detailed spatial analysis using the latest remote sensing technologies. FLINTpro also covers both forests and agriculture, providing a complete framework for land sector GHG emissions estimation.
FLINTpro is a first-in-kind system that integrates a broad range of data and innovative earth-sensing technologies to measure and manage carbon gains and losses — GHG sinks and sources — across all land uses including forests, agriculture, pastures, coastal areas, and soils. Trusted by leaders in finance, government, and business, the FLINTpro team of experts empower decision-makers to see the opportunities in doing business in a nature-positive way.
