In this study we analyzed forest carbon models that use growth yield curve: CBM-CFS3, CO2FIX, CASMOFOR, and EFISCEN. Relatively speaking, CBM-CFS3 is expected to give high accuracy in the estimation of forest carbon with diverse inputs and detailed compartments in biomass pools and dead organic matter pools, and handle C dynamics which is related to disturbance and land-use changes deeply in both small-scale and large-scale forests. CO2FIX has various extended modules based on a cohort approach… 
Spatiotemporal dynamics of forest ecosystem carbon budget in Guizhou: customisation and application of the CBM-CFS3 model for China
Background Countries seeking to mitigate climate change through forests require suitable modelling approaches to predict carbon (C) budget dynamics in forests and their responses to disturbance and
Two large-scale forest scenario modelling approaches for reporting CO2 removal: a comparison for the Romanian forests
This model comparison provided valuable insights on both the conceptual and modelling algorithms, as well as how the quality of the input data may affect calibration and projections of the stock and stock change in the living biomass pool.
The effect of harvesting on national forest carbon sinks up to 2050 simulated by the CBM-CFS3 model: a case study from Slovenia
<p>With the advent of global warming, forests are becoming an increasingly important carbon sink that can mitigate the negative effects of climate change. An understanding of the carbon dynamics of
Estimating Carbon Dynamics in an Intact Lowland Mixed Dipterocarp Forest Using a Forest Carbon Model
Intact dipterocarp forests in Asia act as crucial carbon (C) reservoirs, and it is therefore important to investigate the C dynamics in these forests. We estimated C dynamics, together with net
Estimating the age-dependent changes in carbon stocks of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) stands in Turkey
Abstract• Key messageSimulated and observed carbon stocks in Scots pine forests varied considerably with stand age. The contribution of biomass to the total forest carbon stocks increased and that of
Analysing carbon sequestration and storage dynamics in a changing mountain landscape in Portugal: insights for management and planning
ABSTRACT We assessed the effects of landscape change on the climate regulation ecosystem service in a mountain river basin of Portugal, through the quantification, valuation and mapping of carbon
An Integrated Approach to Determining the Capacity of Ecosystems to Supply Ecosystem Services into Life Cycle Assessment for a Carbon Capture System
In the life cycle assessment (LCA) method, it is not possible to carry out an integrated sustainability analysis because the quantification of the biophysical capacity of the ecosystems to supply
Above ground biomass carbon assessment using field, satellite data and model based integrated approach to predict the carbon sequestration potential of major land use sector of Arunachal Himalaya, India
Abstract The land-use sector needs special importance owing to its ability to store and emit carbon back to the atmosphere. Land-use changes and their correlations could elucidate conditions that put

Belowground biomass dynamics in the Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector: recent improvements and implications for the estimation of NPP and NEP
The objectives of this study were to update the compilation of root biomass and turnover data, to recalculate the regression equations and to evaluate the impact of the new equations on CBM-CFS2 estimates of net primary production (NPP) and net ecosystemProduction (NEP).
The Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector (CBM–CFS2) is a framework for the dynamic accounting of carbon pools and fluxes in Canada’s forest ecosystems and the forest product sector. The
CO2FIX V 3.1 - A modelling framework for quantifying carbon sequestration in forest ecosystems
This report describes the conceptual approach of the CO2FIX V 3.1 model, as well as its implementation and numerous examples. This stand level simulation model is a tool which quantifies the C stocks
Risk of natural disturbances makes future contribution of Canada's forests to the global carbon cycle highly uncertain
In Canada, future efforts to influence the carbon balance through forest management could be overwhelmed by natural disturbances, and future climate mitigation agreements that do not account for and protect against the impacts of natural disturbances will fail to encourage changes in forest management aimed at mitigating climate change.
Approaches for Developing a Korean Model Through Analysis of Overseas Forest Soil Carbon Models
Forest soil carbon model is a useful tool for understanding complex soil carbon cycle in forests and estimating dynamics of soil carbon to climate change. However, studies on development and

Mountain pine beetle and forest carbon feedback to climate change
The cumulative impact of the mountain pine beetle outbreak in the affected region during 2000–2020 will be 270 megatonnes (Mt) carbon, which converted the forest from a small net carbon sink to a large net carbon source both during and immediately after the outbreak.
