Sensitivity of Forest Vegetation Simulations to Scale of the Input Data and Impact to Estimates of Key Habitat Indictors, Tree Size, and Density
We demonstrate that the results of landscape-level vegetation projections using FVS differ depending on the strategy used to aggregate the input data. To illustrate the point, we pickedExpand
Fire Behavior Modeling to Assess Net Benefits of Forest Treatments on Fire Hazard Mitigation and Bioenergy Production in Northeastern California
The fire behavior modeling described here, conducted as part of the Biomass to Energy (B2E) life cycle assessment, is funded by the California Energy Commission to evaluate the potential net benefitsExpand
