ForCAST workshop: Forest change assessment simulation tool

Event information

Date

Add to Calendar 2022-09-29 13:00:00 2022-09-29 16:00:00 ForCAST workshop: Forest change assessment simulation tool The Natural Resources Research Institute's (NRRI) Forest Change Assessment Simulation Tool (ForCAST) provides simulations of how forest composition and the goods and services that forests provide will change from 2020 to 2100 under select harvest volume and climate scenarios. Our goal is to help Minnesotans understand how forests might change due to changing markets and a changing climate over time, and how society values the goods and services they provide. Participants will learn how to use the tool to see changes under different scenarios through time, and how to interpret the output in a meaningful way to incorporate it into their planning processes. During this hands-on workshop, participants will be able to work with the tool, develop queries and discuss outputs with the modeling team leads to better understand the maps and what they are seeing. Bring your laptop to this workshop. We will not be able to provide computers to registrants. Prior to attending, please view the ForCAST webinar.
