The Sierra Nevada Conservancy would provide CCI funding in the amount of $350,000 to the USDA, Forest Service, Region 5, Remote Sensing Laboratory to leverage existing datasets and test future forecasting computer models on the TSCI landscape, the impacts of management activities, and the growth and mortality impacts of drought and fire within TCSI forests. Researchers will use existing TCSI LiDAR to develop a fine-scale above-ground forest carbon data layer by small watershed, including how much of that carbon is in various size classes of trees.
