Research Work Unit NRS-06

[image:] Scientific staff and cooperators of the Research Work Unit at the lab in Durham, NH.The Climate, Fire and Carbon Cycle Sciences staff develops a sound scientific basis and appropriate tools for making local to international resource management, human health/safety, and policy decisions in response to climate change, fire, air pollution, and other threats to people, forests, and watersheds. By connecting climate change and fire research to societal values, we foster innovative management solutions to sustain forests and forest-based values, and improve our quality of life.

Carbon accounting rules and guidelines for the United States Forest Sector - The US Climate Change Initiative includes specific accounting rules and guidelines for reporting and registering forestry activities that reduce atmospheric CO2 by increasing carbon sequestration or reducing emissions. In the forestry sector, there is potential for the economic value of emissions credits to provide increased income for landowners, to support rural development, to facilitate the practice of sustainable forest management, and to support restoration of ecosystems.
