The overarching goal of this project was to to modify, improve, and test carbon storage models for the northeastern US. This was an extension of an existing NSRC project, which proposed to use existing carbon models for a historical assessment of landscape scale changes in carbon storage across the northeast. Because these existing methods for calculating carbon storage at a landscape scale can be highly inaccurate in heterogeneous landscapes, funding from this grant allowed MS candidate Adams to develop and compare several approaches to carbon storage, including field validation of each.
