FCWG Learning Exchange Series: Forest Carbon Soil Partnership, American Forests and NIACS
The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science (NIACS) and American Forests (AF) began a partnership focused on soil carbon in 2017, and have been working since that time to produce increasingly refined, quantitative assessments of land use and management impacts on soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks. An early project that broadly quantified the carbon benefits of reforestation at the national level has provided a foundation for more localized assessments of other types of land use change and forest management activities at ecoregional to landscape levels.

In this talk, project partners Luke Nave (University of Michigan, NIACS) and Kendall DeLyser (AF) will report on project findings for the Central Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic ecoregions, including quantitative estimates of SOC change under differing forest management practices and how these inform tools for land managers and policy makers within the State of Maryland.
