Integrated Modelling Approach for Risk Analysis of Alternative Reclamation Strategies

This project was intended to analyze the relative effect of minor vegetation competition, site and climate factors on the development of water stress in reclaimed forest ecosystems; develop a FORECAST Climate model as a decision-support tool for evaluating climate change impacts on the establishment and long-term development of reclaimed forest ecosystems; calibrate and evaluate the climate growth relationships represented in FORECAST Climate using existing dendrological and climate data; and develop a methodology for risk analysis with respect to reclaimed forest ecosystem performance under existing reclamation strategies and climate change scenarios.
