The increase in greenhouse gas emissions promotes global warming. However, we also know that the biosphere acts as a sink, ie it absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere and help to slow global warming. The location and the size of the wells, however, are unknown. To understand, mitigate and adapt to climate change, we need to resolve uncertainties in the global carbon cycle.

it is important to consider the forest biomass at global scale :

• To reduce the uncertainties in the estimates of stocks and flows of terrestrial carbon
• To have an objective reference in the application of international treaties (REDD +)
• To constraint surface and climate models
• To monitor the planet's resources.
