Climate, wildfire, and management influences on forest carbon carrying capacity

May 2, 2017 - 10:00am to 11:00am

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 and the potential for management to mitigate these effects using a simulation approach.  This webinar will present our results from the Sierra Nevada and southwestern ponderosa pine forests in an effort to provide insight into the future of managing for adaptive capacity in fire-prone forest ecosystems.
