Carbon Stock Estimation of Coronation Garden, Tribhuwan University, Kirtipur, Kathmandu Nepal
Global warming and climate change are the most pressing global issues these days. Deforestation and similar types of land degradation account for up to one quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions. Kathmandu valley is suffering from the air pollution. Different parks, gardens and urban green patches in and around Kathmandu plays vital role in mitigating environmental impacts of emission from burning fossil fuel in Kathmandu valley by sequestrating carbon in forest biomass from valley‘s atmosphere as most part of its area is located in the valley. As per the basis of this research work it can be said that that the forest has stored 620.078 ton C with average biomass stock of 577.2 ton/ha. The total CO2 fixed in the plots of forest was found to be 994.7 tonCO2/ha and 2273.62 ton CO2 for the entire forest of the area. The above ground total biomass was 503.7 ton/ha in the contrast 73.5 ton/ha for below ground root biomass. This result is inclusive to the result of the other studies of the Kathmandu area. The dominant species are Eucalyptus sps. (Masala) Dryobalanops sps. (Kapur) Persian lilac ( Bakaino) Juniperus sps (Dhupi).
this is the case study as the partial fulfillment of the masters second year and you can see the full article at
