SECO is a research project funded by NERC that will generate the first ever estimates of key carbon fluxes across the dry tropics. Collaborators from more than 20 countries will use data from over 600 forest and savanna plots and radar remote sensing to understand how the vegetation of the dry tropics is changing.

This is the biggest project of its kind and will yield new scientific insights into the ecology of savannas and dry forests. Outputs from this project will have important implications for the global carbon budget and global vegetation modeling, which are crucial to better understanding climate change.
