Climate variability, carbon, drought and fire, in arid-semi-arid ecosystems

Science Spotlights Posted on: August 01, 2019
Using the best available science and tools, we can project the effects of today’s management actions on tomorrow’s non-forest vegetation assemblage, carbon, and productivity while considering changing climates. 

Development and validation of combustion process-based emission models

Projects Posted on: March 27, 2015
Wildland fires emit a substantial amount of atmospheric pollutants including carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH4), non-methane organic compounds (NMOC), nitrogen oxides (NOX), fine particulate matter (PM2.5), and black carbon (BC). These emissions have major impacts on regional air quality and global climate.

Climate change impacts on future carbon stores and management of warm deserts of the United States

Publications Posted on: March 12, 2014
Reducing atmospheric CO2 through enhanced terrestrial carbon storage may help slow or reverse the rate of global climate change. However, information on how climate change in the Southwest might affect the balance between CO2 uptake and loss on semiarid rangelands is not easily accessible to land managers.

Review of climate change impacts on future carbon stores and management of warm deserts of the United States

Publications Posted on: January 15, 2014
Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration through enhanced terrestrial carbon storage may help slow or reverse the rate of global climate change. As a result, Federal land management agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management, are implementing management policies to increase carbon storage.
