Developing modes of compatibility of modelling tools

Objectives

Research WPs

The overall aim is to integrate aspects of genetics and wood quality into large scale modelling tools, and to improve the infrastructure and compatibility of these tools to assess goods and services, sustainability, and mitigation and adaptation strategies for European forests.

Sub-objectives are:

  • Assess requirements for compatibility and exchange of data between genetics and wood quality on the one hand and large scale assessment models on the other hand 
  • Improve infrastructure and performance of three existing European models to ensure compatibility between models and the databases compiled by the current project 
  • Develop an open and user-friendly structure supporting the use of these models by the wider European research community to assess goods and services, sustainability, and adaptation and mitigation capacity of European forests
