Modelling the impact of climate change on Fennoscandian forest growth

seminars, workshops |

The Swedish Forest Agency and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) have started the work with new national long-term scenario analysis for Swedish forests (SKA22). In parallel, a project aiming to improve the climate sensitivity of the growth models in the analysis and planning tool Heureka is ongoing at SLU.

As a part of this endeavour, we are organising a digital seminar with the main aim to compare various attempts to model the impact of climate change on Fennoscandian forest growth over the coming decades to century. This comparison will be useful in the development and evaluation of the new growth functions, and for putting the results of the planned scenario analysis in a broader perspective. It will also help us to discuss the performance of a previous version of the Analysis tool Heureka in terms of the sensitivity to the water balance under climate change.

The main target group for the seminar are researchers and forest experts with an interest of technical aspects of forest modelling and scenario analysis.

Four invited scientists with an expertise in forest modelling will present and discuss their model approaches during an open webinar. The seminar will be moderated by Professor Urban Nilsson, Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre, SLU.

The Swedish Forest Agency and SLU arrange this seminar jointly as part of the work to develop and produce new national long-term scenario analysis for Swedish forests (SKA22).
