Author: Chojnacky, David C.; McNulty, Steven G.; Myers, Jennifer Moore; Gavazzi, Michael K.;

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The Forest Inventory Analysis (FIA) program (U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service) systematically samples the nation's forests and currently measures variable related to down woody material (DWM) on a subsample of its plots in the third phase of a 3-phase sampling design. This paper focuses on: (1) compiling estimates of DWM within limitations of existing FIA measurements; (2) modeling available data for spatial application of the DWM to FIA's large sample of phase-2 plots across the eastern U.S.; and (3) discussing potential improvements to FIA measurements that would enhance estimates of DWM across the region.

Keywords: down deadwood, coarse woody debris, CWD, Forst Inventory and Analysis (FIA), carbon
