5.2 Emissions/removals factors
This section is mainly about emissions and removals factors used in REDD+ estimation. In some cases modelling is involved, to establish allometrics, or more complex Tier 3 models. The section also refers to the model parameters relevant in these cases which are used for emissions and removals estimation but are not part of the activity data estimation. These parameters can be regarded as emission or removals factors in a general sense, although the equations in which they are used may be more complicated than a simple activity data x emission factor product.
