The environmental or
mallee plantings and the
human-induced regeneration methodology determinations use the
reforestation modelling tool (RMT) when calculating abatement.
Projects carried out under these RMT-based methodologies must have information about each carbon estimation area (CEA) entered into the RMT.
There may be situations where scheme participants choose to combine several CEAs into one CEA. For example, where small CEAs are located next to each other and share common features (see Figure 1). By combining the CEAs (see Figure 2) there will be less data entry and modelling in the RMT.
For this combination of CEAs to happen, the new CEA must:
Each separate CEA must be entered into the RMT with a modelling point identified for each CEA.
Only one CEA is entered into the RMT with one modelling point. The area between the original CEAs (shown in yellow) now forms the exclusion area for the CEA where the project's activities will not occur, for example, a road or fence line.
