Share your Biomass and Carbon data with the GLOBE community. When you submit your data through GLOBE, the calculations to convert your raw data to biomass and carbon storage values will be completed for you.

Data Analysis Supporting Protocols

Tree Biomass and Carbon Analysis (pdf)
Students observe and understand patterns and trends in their tree field measurement data.
        Enhancement Materials:        Carbon & Biomass Data Example (xls)

Shrub&Sapling Biomass and Carbon Analysis (pdf)
Students observe and understand patterns and trends in their shrub/sapling field measurement data.
        Enhancement Materials:         Carbon & Biomass Data Example (xls)

Herbaceous Biomass and Carbon Analysis (pdf)
Students observe and understand patterns and trends in their herbaceous field measurement data.

Determining Scale and Calculating Area (pdf)
Use an aerial photo/map to scale your sample site carbon measurements to larger areas of similar vegetation.

Carbon in Humans vs. Trees (pdf)
Use a back-of-the-envelope calculation or spreadsheet equations to determine whether more carbon is stored in humans or trees.
        Enhancement Materials:        Human Vs. Tree C Spreadsheet (xls)

Net Primary Productivity (pdf)
Understand the change in carbon storage over time by calculating Net Primary Productivity (NPP). *Needs multiple years of carbon data*
        Enhancement Materials:         NPP Analysis Spreadsheet (xls)
Biosphere, Carbon Cycle
Introduce students to systems thinking through a classroom simulation, and model a system using the '1-box model'.
        Enhancement Materials:        Paper Clip Simulation Spreadsheet (xls)        Online Model Link
Biosphere, Carbon Cycle Learning Activities
Students use an aneroid barometer to measure barometric pressure in support of the Aerosols and Water Vapor Protocols.
