The carbon carrying capacity (CCC) of an ecosystem is determined by prevailing climate and natural disturbance conditions. Projected climate change and increasing area burned have the potential to alter forest CCC. We have been working across several landscapes to quantify the effects of projected climate and wildfire on forest carbon dynamics
his webinar will go through some of the new and exciting fundamental research being conducted by the Forest Service at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory. About half of the Forest Service budget is spent on fire suppression, yet we still can’t explain exactly how wildland fires spread.
