Effects of Natural Disturbances on Carbon Dynamics in Canada’s Managed Forests
Figure 9.5Natural Resources Canada
This figure appears in chapter 9 of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2): A Sustained Assessment Report report.
Disturbances such as wildfire and insects contribute to very large interannual variability in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals on the hectares (ha) of Canadian forestland remaining forestland (FLFL). Emissions include carbon dioxide (CO2) and non-CO2 GHGs converted to CO2 equivalents (CO2e). Forest fluxes are exchanges with the atmosphere, not counting the lateral transfer of harvested wood to the products sector. The upper line includes the forest carbon sink plus annual emissions from the harvested wood products sector, including firewood burning and annual emissions from wood harvested since 1941, regardless of where the wood was oxidized.
