Tipping Points In Tropical Forests: Carbon Fluxes In The Amazon And Africa

Permalink to Tipping Points In Tropical Forests: Carbon Fluxes In The Amazon And Africa

A critical tipping point for the Earth’s climate is the potential transformation of the world’s largest tropical forests from carbon sinks into net sources of emissions, which has been challenging for researchers to predict. But now, groundbreaking studies analyzing observations from Amazonian and African tropical forests find these forests have already reached or are nearing their “saturation points.” Halting deforestation and degradation of forests, while cutting global emissions is critical.
