Summary

A large portion of forests in eastern Canada and US are plantation or managed forests of different ages that absorb atmospheric CO2. Enhancing carbon sequestration by increasing forested land area is one of the most cost-effective options to mitigate elevated atmospheric CO2 levels. The McMaster Hydrometeorology and Climatology group has initiated a long-term research program to investigate how different managed forests will respond to future climate change and extreme weather events. Currently, the seasonal and annual climate variability is being evaluated using 13 years (2003-2015) of eddy covariance fluxes and meteorological and biometric data obtained in Turkey Point, Ontario.
