Emission factors with increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) originating from various human activities are one of the causes of global climate change. The mangrove forest is a type of plant that has a great ability to absorb carbon in the atmosphere and store it in biomass through photosynthesis. Merauke Regency has 20 separate parts based on regional administration, but primary Mangrove forests are only found in ten regions (district). The results of research carried out using geographic information systems (GIS) in processing primary Mangrove forest data based on 2016 land cover map data in Merauke district, the area of primary mangrove forest reaches 184.402 ha, which is spread in various regions. With carbon deposits reaching 21 536 333 t ha-1-Carbon and Emission carbon dioxide reach 409 758.04 t ha-1.
Key words: carbon stock / climate change / spatial map / tropical mangrove
