Community Earth System Model Simulations Reveal the Relative Importance of Afforestation and Forest Management to Surface Temperature in Eastern North America
Afforestation changes the land surface energy balance, though the effects on climate in temperate regions is uncertain, particularly the changes associated with forest management. In this study, we used idealized Community ...
Roadside tree risk management by state departments of transportation in the Mid-Atlantic region
We conducted a pilot study in collaboration with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to ascertain current conditions and capabilities for roadside tree risk management by state departments of transportation (DOTs) ...
The Impact of Water Content on Sources of Heterotrophic Soil Respiration
Heterotrophic respiration (R<sub>H</sub>) is a major flux of CO<sub>2</sub> from forest ecosystems and represents a large source of uncertainty in estimating net ecosystem productivity (NEP) using regional soil respiration ...
Occupational Safety and Health Concerns in Logging: A Cross-Sectional Assessment in Virginia
Increased logging mechanization has helped improve logging safety and health, yet related safety risks and concerns are not well understood. A cross-sectional study was completed among Virginia loggers. Participants n = ...
Lidar-based estimates of aboveground biomass in the continental US and Mexico using ground, airborne, and satellite observations
Existing national forest inventory plots, an airborne lidar scanning (ALS) system, and a space profiling lidar system (ICESat-GLAS) are used to generate circa 2005 estimates of total aboveground dry biomass (AGB) in forest ...
