    Publishing date:

    August 17, 2018

    An international study carried out by the European satellite SMOS now makes it possible to monitor the carbon budget of vegetation with a first application to the African continent. From 2010 to 2016, Sub-Saharan Africa has suffered losses from human deforestation and drought. We here discuss this with Yann Kerr, co-author of this study published in Nature Ecology & Evolution on 9 April. He was director of CESBIO (Centre d’Etudes Spatiales de la BIOsphère) from 2007 to 2016, is behind the SMOS project and is its principal investigator.
