In order to develop carbon farming practices and understand the effects, it is necessary to monitor the carbon sequestration to the soil under different conditions. The Field Observatory Network (FiON) has created a methodology towards monitoring and predicting agricultural carbon sequestration by combining offline and near-real-time field measurements, meteorological data, satellite imagery and modelling. In order to share the work and results, an online platform open to everyone called Field Observatory has been built.
