Annual sequestration rates in Gg CO 2 eq. by forest management (excluding afforestation, reforestation and deforestation, ARD). Indications from 1990 through 2007 based on IEEAF data and from 2003 through 2040 on WEHAM scenarios A, D and F. The values in 2003 – 2007 reflect a mean between IEEAF and the respective WEHAM scenario. Positive (black) numbers represent emissions to the atmosphere; negative (red) numbers represent removals from the atmosphere (the sink function of forests).
