Scientific & Technical Board (STB)

The STB ensures the continuing progress toward the long-term objective of providing on-going space-based and in-situ observations of forests and other vegetation cover for sustainable management of terrestrial resources, and to obtain an accurate, reliable, quantitative understanding of the terrestrial carbon budget.

The STB works to form partnerships that lead to the initiation of project activities which will be managed by the Implementation Teams. Members are selected from user agencies and technical agencies contributing substantially to GOFC-GOLD.

STB meetings are held every three to four years in conjunction with strategy revision and update.
