About this Project

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Forests are important contributors to the global carbon cycle, acting as net sources or sinks of greenhouse gases, depending on land use, management and disturbance impacts (e.g., forest fires). This project will generate maps, data and computer models to improve our understanding of the role of land cover, land cover change, and forestry in the North American carbon cycle and identify opportunities for improved land management and climate change mitigation activities.
