It is based on a technical report published by FAO which includes appendices with all resource material and descriptions of the individual calculators.

The data for this guide is taken directly from on the letter Colomb et al, Selection of appropriate calculators for landscape-scale greenhouse gas assessment for agriculture and forestry, Environmental Research Letters, 8, 015029, doi:10.1088/1748-9326/8/1/015029.
