Paper Abstract

Increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes the surface temperature of the earth to warm up and has a major impact on climate change globally. Plants in the forest as the biggest absorber of carbon dioxide used in the process of photosynthesis, then the results are stored in the form of biomass in plant organ tissues. The purpose of the study was to estimate biomass and carbon storage in the Mount Tampomas Protected Forest Area in Sumedang, West Java. Mount Tampomas protected forest area is divided into areas dominated by pine plant species (Pinus merkusii) and mixed jungles. In the two regions the NDVI class was classified into 5 classes as the basis for calculating the stand density, biomass and carbon storage. The relationship between NDVI classes and stand densities can be demonstrated by linear and quadratic regression models. The quadratic regression model has r of 0.79 while the linear regression model of 0.78. Quadratic regression model is the best model to connect the NDVI class and stand density, where the NDVI class and stand density are very strongly related. The total biomass and carbon deposits sequentially in protected forest areas dominated by pine are 132,613.79 tons and 62,328.48 tons C, while the total biomass and carbon deposits sequentially in mixed forest protected areas are 64,682.95 tons and 30,400.99 tons C, so that the total biomass and carbon storage sequentially in the Mount Tampomas Protected Forest Area are 197,296.74 tons and 92,729.47 tons C.
