Description: In the summer of 2014 the US Forest Service’s Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program of the Pacific Northwest (PNW) Research Station in conjunction with NASA Goddard carried out a pilot inventory of the forests of interior Alaska. This inventory was conducted on the State of Alaska’s Tanana Valley State Forest and on the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge. As part of the field protocols that were implemented, field crews measured Down Woody Material (DWM), sampled soils and collected tree cores. The DWM protocols were based on standard FIA protocols. The soil sampling included a modified protocol based on the US Geological Survey’s (USGS) protocols for the boreal forests of the region. The tree core measurements were made on cores collected from site and age trees of FIA plots. The results of these data collection efforts will provide insights into carbon content in these forests and into trends in tree growth rates. In addition, because it was a pilot inventory the goals were to improve field sampling methods prior to a full scale inventory of the interior forests of Alaska.
