Abstract

The First-Order decay method for carbon stocks is derived from first principles, and applications in the context of national greenhouse gas inventories are discussed. For methane emissions from landfills a method is developed that in principle is more accurate than the method currently recommended by the IPCC, and systematic errors are estimated numerically. The First-Order decay method is further applied to derive the permanent part of the carbon pool of harvested wood products.
