Ken Skog is Project leader for Economics and Statistics Research at the US Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory, Madison, WI. His work includes evaluating forest management regimes for enhancing carbon storage, estimating potential wood biomass supply from forests for the revision to the Billion ton supply report and for the USDA/DOE national biorefinery siting model, and evaluating the impact of of U.S. wood energy consumption on U.S. and global forest product markets, forest carbon, and wood products carbon storage. Dr. Skog was a co-author of  the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for estimating carbon sinks in harvested wood products for country reporting purposes, and a co-author of a carbon footprint for the U.S. forest sector supply chain.
