Forest Climate Working Group Learning Exchange Series
May 6, Noon PT, 1:oo p.m MT, 2:00 CT, 3:00 ET
Similar to standing trees in the forests, wood products play an important role in enhancing the global sequestered carbon pool, by retaining the atmospheric carbon in a sequestered form for the duration of the functional life of the wood products. Dr. Indroneil Ganguly will explain the how we have used temporal radiative forcing analysis along with the functional half-life of different wood products to evaluate the impacts of wood products on global warming, including carbon storage and life cycle greenhouse gas production/extraction emissions. He will also discuss how the model can be applied at a landscape level (WA State) and to innovative products like Cross Laminated Timber (CLT).
